Into the Wild

We watched Into the Wild recently.

"Based on a true story and the bestselling book by Jon Krakauer. After graduating from Emory University in 1992, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless (Hirsch) abandons his possessions, gave his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness. Along the way, Christopher encounters a series of characters that shape his life." {via}

It was a good movie. Not being familiar with the true story, we decided to read more. Outside features an interesting article- Death of an Innocent and there is a documentary- The Call of the Wild.
