Into the Wild

Wow. Jon Krakauer's Into the Wild, a fantastic book which is one of my absolute all-time favorites, has now been made into a film by Sean Penn. Here's the trailer. It looks terrific, and I'm really looking forward to seeing it. (While I'll allow Mr. Penn a great deal of artistic latitude in bringing Krakauer's story to film, I urgently hope he resisted the urge to give it a happy ending, which would be a betrayal to Chris McCandless' legacy.)

I'm constantly amazed at how Hollywood can turn any source material into some cliched movie trailer. Still, I'll be interested to see it. Great book.
