Reese Witherspoon Sounds Like A Feminist In 'Wild' Because She Is One

Fox Searchlight

Based on Cheryl Strayed's memoir of the same name, "Wild" already has the kind of Oscar buzz surrounding it that's de rigueur for a film released in the last month of the year. But starring Reese Witherspoon as Strayed and directed by Jean-Marc Vallée ("Dallas Buyers Club"), the hype comes with good reason: "Wild" is a great movie, and stands out as one of the few releases this fall that features a female protagonist with her own agenda.

In this new clip from the film, debuting exclusively here at HuffPost Entertainment, Strayed is interviewed by a journalist for The Hobo Times during her trek up the Pacific Crest Trail. "You sound like a feminist" the reporter (played with hilarious enthusiasm by Mo McRae) says after Cheryl explains why it's near impossible for women to drop out of their own lives. Yeah, she is. Watch below; "Wild" opens in limited release on Dec. 5 before a nationwide rollout.
