The film is the story of a businessman, played by Chris Pine, whose life is rocked when he learns his late father had a secret daughter. Wilde portrays Pine's girlfriend, Hannah.

The documentary follows a community in Haiti that rallies to build a movie theater after the disastrous 2010 earthquake.

Additionally, Wilde starred in and produced "Fix," the story of documentary filmmakers who race all over California to get help for a relative. "Fix" opened at the 2008 Slamdance Film Festival and was released in New York in November 2009.

Her previous television roles include co-starring in the drama "The Black Donnellys," created by Paul Haggis. Her television breakout role was in the Jerry Bruckheimer produced FOX series "Skin," and she is also well known for her recurring role as Alex Kelly on the critically acclaimed FOX series "The O.C." On stage, Wilde headlined "Beauty on the Vine" in the Epic Theatre Center's off-Broadway production in 2007.

Wilde is a board member of Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ) and sits on the foundation board of the ACLU of Southern California. She recently teamed up with APJ board members Barbara Burchfield and Bryn Mooser to launch a new chapter of the organization named Young Artists for Peace and Justice (YAPJ). YAPJ is dedicated to creating a movement in American high schools and colleges to contribute to the end of poverty by supporting education in the developing world.

Wilde was among the early supporters of President Barack Obama, hitting the campaign trail during the primary season. She is also a longtime advocate of PowerUp Gambia, a nonprofit organization that seeks to create medical clinics in rural Africa using solar panels to supplement electricity.
