For the culture vultures

For anyone who likes to be outdoors, Into The Wild – the based-on-a-real-life tale of Chris McCandless’s disappearance and eventual quest for survival in the middle of Alaska – shouldn’t be missed.

It’s one of the most beautifully-shot movies I’ve ever seen, but McCandless’s story (based on a meticulously researched book by Jon Krakauer) is equal parts inspiring and troubling. Go see it.
