Witherspoon's latest movie sees her play a very real woman, whose hardships in her life with drugs and bereavement encouraged her to go on a voyage of self-discovery by taking on the testing Pacific Crest Trail despite having never had any previous hiking experience.

Now, biopics can be really hit-and-miss as we’ve seen in the past year, but something that works in this one’s favour is the directing choice – Get It While You Can could be helmed by Dallas Buyers Club director Jean-Marc Vallée.
