Into the WildDVD - 2007
"This is the true story of Christopher McCandless (Hirsch). Freshly graduated from college with a promising future ahead, this 22-year-old instead walked out of his privileged life and into the wild in search of adventure. What happened to him on the way transformed this young wanderer into an enduring symbol for countless people. Was Christopher McCandless a heroic adventurer or a naive idealist, a rebellious 1990's Thoreau or another lost American son, a fearless risk-taker or a tragic figure who wrestled with the precarious balance between man and nature?"
Based on the true story of Christopher McCandless, who gave his life savings to charity and headed out on the open road to reach the Alaskan wilderness.

Ron Franz (all choked up): "I'm gonna miss you when you go." Christopher McCandless: "I'll miss you too, Ron. But you're wrong if you think that the joy of life comes principally from human relationships. God's place is all around us -- it's in everything, and anything we can experience. People just need to change the way they look at those things." Ron Franz: "Yeah. I'm, I'm gonna take stock of that. You know I am. ...I am. But I wanna tell you something. From the bits and pieces I've put together... you know, from what you've told me about your family -- your mother and your dad... and I know you've got your problems with the church too... But there's some kinda bigger thing we can all appreciate, and it sounds like you don't mind calling it God... But, when you forgive... you love. And when you love, God's light shines on you."
