After graduating from Emory University, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandons his possessions, gives his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhikes to Alaska to live in the wilderness. Along the way, Christopher encounters a series of characters that shape his life.
- Emile Hirsch - Chris McCandless
- Marcia Gay Harden - Billie McCandless
- William Hurt - Walt McCandless
- Jena Malone - Carine McCandless / Additional Narrator
- Sean Penn
Not a fan of Penn and think the man is a giant douche but he’s done o.k with this. Hirsch’s character is not that likable at the start but he grows on you. Great support from Keener and Holbrook. Worth a watch.
