Into The Wild
Into The Wild is the true story of Christopher McCandliss who lived his life traveling the Alaskan wilderness in the 1990's.
Into The Wild, directed and produced by Sean Penn was nominated for two Academy Awards in 2007.
The film stars Emile Hirsch as McCandliss, a young man who relishes the opportunity to live in isolation in the wilderness and survive off the land.
McCandliss makes the decision to live off the grid after graduating from Emory University, he destroys his credit cards and donates his savings to charity and takes off without telling his family where or why he is going causing them great distress and angst throughout the film.
McCandliss initially spends his time hitchhiking and working odd jobs throughout the country and living a vagabond existence.
The final act of the movie shows McCandliss living in the Alaskan Wilderness where he sought complete isolation, thinking solitude was the route to personal happiness. However, as time goes on, McCandliss realizes the difficulty in surviving on one's own without the help of others as well as the crushing loneliness that ensues in his chosen lifestyle.
Towards the end of the story, he realizes, to be truly happy he needs the comfort of friends and family. However, ironically, once he realizes this he finds himself trapped in the Alaskan Wilderness due to the rising of a river he can no longer pass in order to get back to civilization.
Into The Wild is a philosophical journey of one man's quest to find meaning and happiness in his existence where the modern world does not suit him. We, the audience, are given insight into McCandliss' thought process through the journals he kept while traveling and living in the wild.
Into The Wild is a well-directed and acted movie and as most good films leaves much for the audience to discuss once the credits roll.
Into The Wild will be available On Netflix Streaming In May.
