Into the Wild
If you don't mind a bit of nudity (it's a rated R film - both male & female nudity...none of it really needed in the film, but whatever), this is a great film. Normally, we don't get rated R movies, but this was about a boy going to Alaska. I think my husband really wants to end up in AK so we got it. If you liked the film/documentary Grizzly Man, you really will love this. If you love Thoreau or Jack London; also a film to see. Basically it's about a boy whose world was rocked by his parents' past and deception. He was a noncomformist, a modern-day hippie, someone who wanted to make his own rules and not be ruled by the norm. He's a very deep character. The most amazing part is that this is a true story. These events actually happened to Christopher Mccandless. It's seriously worth the rental money.
