I saw Into the Wild last night and was blown away and it really should have been nominated for Best Picture. But maybe once you see it you’ll see why the makers of the film and person it was made about (true story) would be happy “not” to be nominated. The movie left me feeling sad at first but then even angry at the lead character for being selfish.

But when I thought about it more I realized that for all his tragic flaws, the power of this story is that this young boy went on the type of adventure we all think about taking in life but never do.
