Into the Wild is an Adventure and Drama movie as well as a Biography.

Emile Hirsch stars as Chris McCandless, a student athlete who

graduates from Emory University and sets out to experience life

in the Alaskan wilderness. The film was adapted from the novel

of the same name. It was released to theaters in 2007 while the

DVD became available in 2008. It is rated R for language as well

as nudity.

The R rating of Into the Wild is well-deserved. However, it was

nominated for 2 Oscars, with 12 wins and 36 other nominations

between different awards ceremonies. As a result, many feel that

it is a rewarding movie to own on DVD. The theme and content of the movie is geared towards adults so we advise parents to watch this movie first before deciding whether to share it with their teenagers.

Of course, different parents will have different feelings about

Into the Wild. For that reason, it is wisest for parents concerned

about its rating and content to watch the movie themselves first.

If the overall message or creative value of the film is worth

sharing, consider skipping over any portions of the DVD felt to

be less suitable.
