Into the Wild is based on an extraordinary true story which is told in the bestselling book by Jon Krakauer. After graduating from Emory University in 1992, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandons his possessions, hitchhikes across the country and eventually to Alaska where he lives in the wilderness. Chris is on a journey of self-discovery that will transform him and will resonate with all those who sometimes feel constricted by the rules of society.
A spellbinding film. - Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
