Dallas Buyer's Club director Jean-Marc Vallée goes Wild

Jean-Marc Vallée on transforming Cheryl Strayed's best selling memoir into movie form.

Quebec's Jean-Marc Vallée broke into Hollywood with 2013's The Dallas Buyer's Club -- but now he's treading new ground with Wild, a quieter, character-driven feature film.  

The memoir-turned-movie stars Reese Witherspoon as best-selling memoirist Cheryl Strayed, who hit the Pacific Crest Trail in her journey away from heroin, divorce and other demons. 

Watch the trailer for Wild below.
