Jean-Marc Vallée also directed Dallas Buyers Club (2013) which was nominated for (and won) best actor Matthew McConaughey and supporting actor Jared Leto similar to this film but different gender, because this film was nominated for best actress Reese Witherspoon and supporting actress Laura Dern.
Fucking Saint Patrick. Go to hell, all you saints.
Cheryl: Thank you, God, for showing me the way... As if he gives a shit... I'm sorry, but God is a ruthless bitch.
Cheryl is seen pumping water through a First Need water filter. The water in the bottle is hopelessly muddy and dirty, and she adds iodine to purify the water to make it drinkable. The filter shown will actually produce clean, clear and immediately-drinkable water, free of bacteria and protozoa, without any need for further sterilization, even from a very muddy source. It is good product placement, but a poor plot angle for the manufacturer.
There are photos of the real Cheryl Strayed on her actual walk shown during the credits.
