Based on the best selling book, this true story tells the tale of a young man called Chris McCandless who decides to abandon all the trappings of modern life in favour of living in the wilderness. He burns his money, gets rids of his credit cards and leaves everything behind for a life on the road, intending to settle in the wilds of Alaska. Along the way he meets all kinds of folk (including Vince Vaughn and Kristen Stewart) and runs into his fair share of obstacles, while his poor family are only sick with worry! You'll be willing him to phone his sister by the end but also probably contemplating just abandoning ship and taking to the high roads yourself. The stunning Eddie Vedder soundtrack alone would be enough to have you packing your bags.
