Into The Wild is based on a true story about a young man named Christopher McCandless who leaves everything behind to find himself in nature. He wanted to get away from the typical life that most of us live. A job that we hate, worries about money, debt and just "stuff" in general. The story is very inspiring and makes you think. Chris hitch hikes his way across the country until he reaches Alaska. It was his dream to live in the wild in complete solitude. Truly become one with nature.
The last few years of my life I have realized how important it is to get outside and be close to nature. Sometimes my feelings about nature are hard to put into words. I felt like I could really relate to a lot of things that Chris did. I understood why he chose to live in the wild. How he was able to learn so much about himself by "getting away". This movie really shows the importance of nature in a persons life.
Watch the trailer below to get a really good look at the film. I really loved it!
