At a Glance
Sean Penn directs this drama based the best-selling true account of a young man who gives up everything — including his trust fund and ties to a seemingly stable family — to lead a solitary life in the wild. Eschewing convention to trek across Alaska’s harsh and often unforgiving terrain, Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsch) resolves to live off the land. But along the way, he encounters emotional obstacles and unexpected hardship.
There is a pleasure in the pathless woods; There is a rapture on the lonely shore; There is society, where none intrudes, By the deep sea, and music in its roar; I love not man the less, but Nature more ..
You don’t need human relationships to be happy, God has placed it all around us.
And the best quote … “Rather than love, than money, than faith, than fame, than fairness… give me truth”
