5.0 out of 5 stars Poignant, beautiful, searing, heartbreaking., 11 July 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Into the Wild [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
I read the book some time ago & found that the tale of Chris McCandless had burnt into my memory so, when the film was released, I was curious if the film could be as good as the book.

The film takes the story to another plane & is Sean Penn's masterpiece.

The scenery is breathtaking, the cast faultless, the soundtrack haunting but it is the story & the fact that it is a TRUE story that really drives it home.

An amateur review is never going to capture the wonderful & lasting experience that watching this film will bring. I suggest that you take it easy & watch it over a long period & digest all that it offers.

A tale of love, life, loneliness & just how much the human spirit has within it if only we give it the chance.

It seems that Chris McCandless touched alot of peoples' lives & now, through the artistry of Sean Penn's film & Krakauer's book, he will surely touch alot more. I came away feeling humble & thankful for my lot realising that we can perhaps do alot more with our lives.

It's just so good!
