Into the Wild (2007)
"Your great adventure on Alaska."After graduating from Emory University, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandons his possessions, gave his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness. Along the way, Christopher encounters a series of characters that shape his life.
I saw this movie at an advanced screening in Nashville on August 23,
2007. Although it was a little long, it was a great movie.
The movie follows an Emory grad who struggles to find the meaning of
life. He travels across the country (ultimately to Alaska) and along
the way he touches lives and becomes a man.
This movie really makes a person reevaluate their priorities in life
and I personally found it to be inspiring. The director did a beautiful
job with the story line and the landscapes were incredible.
Vince Vaughn plays a small part and is his usual lovable self. Emile
Hirsch was wonderful and has a bright future in acting.
One shocker was the random brief nudity of men and women.
This movie is worth seeing at least once.
