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.
