reviews { Into the Wild

Another movie about a journey. Its based on a true story set in 1990-1992 about a man who after graduating from college drops of the face of the Earth to leave his parents. He embarks on his "great adventure" and heads towards Alaska. The movie chronicles he trip, zig-zagging across America and the people he meets. It contained an all star cast and a soundtrack by Eddie Vedder. Its not a happy film, it just is what it is. Its a beautifully told story if albeit a sad one.

McCandless's story is tragic, but then so many people have benefited from hearing it... a couple of years of hitchhiking and camping made a story that now challenges thousands (millions?) of people to reexamine their lives
