Into the Wild (Sean, Penn, 2007)
Into the Wild (Sean Penn, 2007)
I wasn't too enthralled with the story, which I think mostly had to do with the fact that I disagreed with a lot of the main character's philosophy on life. The sister's narration of the back story was unbelievably irritating, but the final 30 minutes of the film made up for much of my disinterest. There are some beautiful shots in this film, however that should be expected in a film like this, so I don't give Penn too much credit in that regard as it's not that difficult to capture the beauty of nature.
