Into the Wild Movie Synopsis
Freshly graduated from college with a promising future ahead, 22-year-old top student and athlete Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsh) abandoned his possessions, gave his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and walked out of his privileged life and into the wild in search of adventure. What happened to him on the way transformed this young wanderer into an enduring symbol for countless people.
Was Christopher McCandless a heroic adventurer or a naïve idealist, a rebellious 1990s Thoreau or another lost American son, a fearless risk-taker or a tragic figure who wrestled with the precarious balance between man and nature?
Based on a true story and the bestselling book by Jon Krakauer.
Emile Hirsch was fabulous I couldn't stop crying at the end of the movie...Still thinking about it.. :(
I thought this movie was incredible, inspiring, touching, sad, etc...made me cry...I can't stop thinking about it...I went straight to the library to get the book and now that I read the comments on the soundtrack I will listen to that too...will definitely own the movie so that my kids can see it(when their old enough)...amazing actor..sean penn is great for letting the world see this story...it should have won the oscar...best director, picture and actor...best movie...
Awesome movie and story. I only wish I could have done something similiar. Now I'm nearing my 40's and stuck in a rut. Chris lived his live well.
