Into the Wild

I recently saw the movie "Into the Wild". It's about Christopher McCandless, a top student who abandoned his possessions, donated his entire savings account to charity and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness. Along the way Chris encounters a series of characters who shape his life.
The movie is based on a true story and the book by Jon Krakauer. Sean Penn is the director of this film and wanted to make this movie for a long time. Emile Hirsch has the honor to play the leading role and he does a great job. Until this movie Hirsch was just a vague name, but now I think we will hear from him more often. At least that's what I hope, 'cause he's a fantastic actor. It's a wonderfull movie, great characters, touching story and beautiful quotes by Chris. Hirsch practically gives away a perfect one man show, but I should credit Catherine Keener and Hal Holbrook as well, who have very strong supporting roles. I could recommened this movie to all of you.
