Into the Wild is 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.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Hirsch, who carries the film on his increasingly emaciated shoulders, performs heroically, but there's an edge missing. – David Ansen, Newsweek, Dec 4, 2007

Fresh: Without diminishing the deep transcendentalist yearnings of its young hero, Into the Wild builds to a climax of profound human connectedness, profound human pain. – Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: Even Penn's more indulgent flourishes seem to enhance the film's keen feeling. – Tim Robey, Sight and Sound, Oct 3, 2011

Fresh: As [Hirsch] struggles with the elements, his increasing frailty and the cinematography's increasing grandeur mesh in a way that's at once iconic and wrenching. – Bob Mondello,, Oct 3, 2011
