I just watched this movie, and it was excellent.

I am not a drama type of guy. Im all about the action and suspense, but i was very pleasingly surprised about how well this movie kept my attention.

Its based on a true story about a guy (chris) who had bad experiences growing up with his parents and early child hood. He never understood why people worked, why people became angry with eachother, and to him: live a unhappy life.
Early in the movie he was in a car accident and instead of seeking help or trying to recover the things he had, he just decided it was time to live life how he wanted too.
He left his car, his family, all material possessions and started his journey to Alaska. He meets up with wide ranging characters on his trip, and they mold him, as he molds them.
I highly recommend this movie.
