Sean Penn directs this feature based on best-selling author Jon Krakauer's true story of a young man who gives up everything to lead a solitary life in the wild. Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsch), a middle-class college graduate, abandons his safe existence to trek across the harsh yet beautiful terrain of Alaska. William Hurt and Marcia Gay Harden co-star, along with Catherine Keener, Vince Vaughn and Hal Holbrook (in an Oscar-nominated role)
Into the wild was was a very enjoyable movie. I love to watch movies that are based on true stories. Plot and presentation were very well thought out. It kept you guessing and wanting more. It's hard to imagine a person giving up all their worldly possessions and living in the wild. Though I have to say the moving was a little slow going. Over all I'll have to give it 3 stars out of 5 star rating.
