After graduating from Emory University, top student and athlete Christopher McCandless abandons his possessions, gives his entire $24,000 savings account to charity and hitchhikes to Alaska to live in the wilderness. Along the way, Christopher encounters a series of characters that shape his life.
While most nature shows are either overly clinical or senselessly dramatic, this show is perfectly balanced. Julia is entirely herself and we love her for it. She brings a sense of concern and urgency to the plight of the orangutan that has a palpable immediacy. At the same time, she manages to finds humor in many of the situations, while staying true to mission of the show.
Every reason people love Julia Roberts in her movies is also present in this feature. She and the orangutans will win your heart and at the same time inspire us into action to save this very endangered species.
