What's the best "set-jetting" film of 2014? The film that really makes you want to get up and go somewhere?
Well, there's Paddington Bear (London), Gone Girl (Missouri), Exodus (where the big wave was filmed in the Canary Islands).
But for our money the best set-jet film of late last year (even better than Grand Budapest Hotel) is Wild.
Why? Because Wild is a visceral representation of how travel transforms. Filmed largely in Oregon and Washington (not on the actual trail that Cheryl Strayed walked--that 1,100 mile Pacific Crest trek), the movie shows what travel does to you, blisters and all (oh that boot scene!).
We're sorry the Golden Globes passed Reese up last night but we're still hopeful that Oscar won't.
