Into the Wild
2007, 140 minutes
Based on a true story, Christopher McCandless leaves a college education, material wealth and a seemingly bright future to head into the Alaskan wilderness. No one truly knows why he did this but this film traces his steps across the country, meeting and befriending dozens and his eventual death due to lack of preparation and knowledge of the harsh life of the wild. Based on the book by Jon Krakauer.
