Into the Wild
(2007) Drama / Adventure
Into the wild is perhaps the most popular film of the last decade. Sean Penn tells the story of Christopher McCandless: a boy from West Virginia who after graduation decides to embark on a solo journey for two years until he arrives in Alaska and lives for a few months on an abandoned bus. Playing the young boy is Emile Hirsh who is perfect for the part and portrays the character beautifully. The film is based on Jon Krakauer’s book Into the Wild. Sean Penn manages to make a perfect picture of Christopher McCandless. He simply tells the boy’s dreams and anxieties, through a road movie in which all the sensitivity of the protagonist is captured and not portraying him as a modern hero or a martyr of the consumer society.
The film is built on flashbacks that break between the present and the past, thus making the viewer autonomous in reconstructing the pieces of the story. All this is made even more impactful thanks to a splendid work of photography aimed at enhancing the natural and uncontaminated landscapes of North America; intensifying the nature-civilization dichotomy from which Chris escapes. The film was received positively by both critics and audiences enough to make the Magic Bus, where Chris lived in Alaska, a destination for adventure enthusiasts. drama movies into the wild.
