Into the Wild
by María (Intermediate 1E, 2007-08)
I've seen several films this year but nohing really fantastic. So I have chosen one of them because it is my favourite one.
The film is called Into the Wild. It is directed by Sean Pen and the main actor is Emile Hirch. It is set in California, Dakota and Alaska (three different places), and it was filmed in the real places, not in a studio, and the actor originally spoke in English.
The film is based on a real story.
The plot is about a good student who finished his degree and everybody thought that he would have a brilliant future but he decided to leave his comfortable life and he went to look for adventure.
He gave away all his money to charity. He wanted to be free and he wished to know the wild. Then he travelled a lot over the prairies and deep trees, the mountains and the rivers. In his trip he met lots of people who didn't agree with the society of the USA.
In the end he goes into Alaska where he dies of hunger. This scene made me cry but I really enjoyed the whole film.
I hope everybody enjoys this film like I did!
