Into the wild

I really enjoyed the book by Jon Krakauer about Chris McCandless, he (almost) makes you become the character and live the life of Chris. The movie just got released in The Netherlands, I'm not sure if I'm going to watch. Many movies are quite mediocre compared to the experience the book gives. Then again, Sean Penn made the movie, so maybe...
Based on a true story. After graduating from Emory University in 1992, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandoned his possessions, gave his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhiked to Alaska to live in the wilderness. Along the way, Christopher encounters a series of characters who shape his life.
