INTO THE WILD
Directed by Sean Penn. Starring Emile Hirsch, Marcia Gay Harden, William Hurt, Jena Malone, Catherine Keener, Hal Holbrook, Vince Vaughn 15 cert Penn’s fourth film as director is his most adventurous and accomplished. It charts the factually based experiences of a complicated young college graduate, Christopher McCandless (Hirsch), who drops out of society in a quest for utopian simplicity that ends in Alaska. Visually the film is an outstanding achievement, and it features fine performances from Hirsch and Oscar-nominated Holbrook.
