I just saw this movie last night. Its based on a book written by John Krakauer. Based on a true story, the book and movie recount the journey and adventures of Christopher McCandless, a new college graduate disillusioned w/ society and his troubled home life. He's kind of a Catcher in the Rye person seeking truth in simplicity. Though Chris meets peril and death in Alaska, the story is not one of tragedy, but rather of beauty, simplicity, growth, love, and forgiveness.
Its a great movie and a great read. I plan on re-reading this book!
