I purchased a copy of the Sean Penn movie…It wasn’t bad, but it was very anticlimactic, in my opinion.

I think I’d describe this guy as more of a free spirit, than a hero.

Going off into the wild to just be free, is a lot of peoples dream…but it’s a harsh life…rife with danger.

See…now, this was either ignored or extremely vague in the movie…

…Possibly a dream like flashback scene, with lots of yelling…

…So many of us have abusive, dysfunctional parents…a bit of yelling doesn’t convey a whole lot, when your early life family situation is so messed up.
