Movie: Into the Wild

Excellent movie. Directed by Sean Penn.

The story is about a guy ventured into Alaska from West Virginia, living in the wild without any outside world interruption. At the end of the journey, he discovered that:

"Happiness is only real when it's shared".

Do you agree with him?

I would rephrase the sentence:

"Happiness is amplified when shared".

    Bee Ean,

    New to your blog - this movie is based on a true story of a young man from VA who after graduated from college decided how it is like living in the wild. He had everything in life but alas, his unpreparedness living in the wild cost him his life. A truly sad ending seeking the true meaning of "happiness". His sis appeared on one of the network morning show during the debut of the movie here in the US.


  2. Yes indeed it was a very sad story. He was all enthusiasm but at the end what he believed in caused his life.

    McCandless's story is tragic, but then so many people have benefited from hearing it... a couple of years of hitchhiking led to his story challenging thousands (millions?) of people to reexamine their lives
