Wow. Wow. Wow. These are the only words that my lips could produce after seeing this beautifully tragic and altogether moving film. (I'm terrible with names and haven't seen this for a while, so I'll try my best) It tells the story of Chris (?), a 20-something college graduate who is destined for Harvard (or was it Stanford?). He has outstanding grades, seemingly endless money, and stuffy parents; the perfect Harvard (Stanford) formula. When his parents give him a arge sum of money as a graduation present, he is apalled. He sees it perfectly fine to drive an old car and is happy with the diploma he has, to his parents' strong disapproval. As his Harvard (Stanford) days near, Chris (?) decides to burn his money, destroy his credit cards, take off his license plates, and change his name (though not legally). He starts out for the Alaskan wilderness, and meets many friends along the way. These include a flamboyant hippie couple, a dutch couple who long to see Mexico and a farmer (Vince Vaughn) who is in trouble with the law. As many know, Chris's journey ends tragically, with him dying of starvation, but that doesn't make the film feel depressing or gloomy. My only complaint is this: Chris (?) never forgave his parents,and acts in an EXTREMELY immature matter toward them, though he advises others to forgive and forget, making him something of a hypocrite. As far as content, there's really nothing TOO suggestive here: there's some non-sexual nudity (full frontal, though) and brief strong language. So, 12 year-olds, probably not (I was fine) but anyone older should be fine and to those of you older, SEE IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
