movie recommendation: Wild

Really, really liked Wild. It opens with a scene that may make you wince, and I didn't trust the filmmakers for the first ten or fifteen minutes. Then I realized it's a great little movie. Reese Witherspoon and Laura Dern are great, and so's the scenery. It's consistently surprising—sometimes very funny, sometimes very sad, sometimes very sexual (but not sensuous, a distinction you probably will not understand until after you see the movie).
