Sean Penn is not only a great actor but also a brilliant director. His film is just so real and powerful that made me feel so many things. It is about the life of Christopher McCandless, a young student who after finished high school, he decided to leave his house and family back and discover world. He wants to go in Alaska and live there alone in the wilderness as a free man. He will meet several people who will help discover his self and truth about love, happiness and respect. They will also take some lessons of dreaming a better world from him as well. Chris has an incredible way of thinking and he never changed his mind of living a life away from the modern civilization. A romantic hero that made people smiling. Incredible movie. One of the best I saw this year. RECOMMENDED!
