Robust yet freewheeling adaptation of John Krakauer's non-fiction book about the extraordinary experiences of young American college graduate and society dropout Christopher McCandless (Hirsch), who traded his privileged future for a life on the road. Penn's portrait of McCandless' travels is a poetic and romanticised one, beautifully photographed by French cinematographer Eric Gautier and unspooling as a series of largely life-affirming encounters with nature and fellow travellers.
This film is not currently showing in cinemas.
