Into the Wild by Sean Penn( Visual )

42 editions published between 2007 and 2015 in 7 languages and held by 2,804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Christopher McCandless a 22 ans, de brillants diplômes et une vie qui semble déjà toute tracée. Animé par une soif dabsolu et de liberté sans limite, il plaque tout pour partir à laventure à la découverte des USA. On louera nécessairement la qualité de la photo, sublime, mettant en valeur chaque instant de la traversée de divers Etats, saisissant aussi bien la descente du Colorado, le retour depuis le Mexique, que les étendues enneigées de l'Alaska, dernière étape d'un récit compté en de multiples flash backs, parfois accompagnés de bribes de commentaires faits par une soeur qui sait l'urgence ressentie par son frère à vivre autrement. Sean Penn tire au passage un état des lieux du pays, forcément politique. Des hippies désabusés aux immigrés mexicains, au besoin d'argent permanent, il met son idéaliste héros face à l'aliénation d'un peuple, mais aussi à une certaine réalité. Un road-movie initiatique porté par une photographie somptueuse

The real contender is his half-brother Micky Ward. 31-year-old Micky is an unassuming nice guy, long regarded as little more than a stepping-stone for rising fighters, but with undeniable potential. Between his controlling mom Alice, who manages his career, his crack head trainer brother, and a Greek chorus of seven sisters, Micky doesn't have a chance. Until his tough-chick bartender girlfriend Charlene gives him the confidence and support to consider a different course. But his success comes at a cost--as he must leave his family behind in the process
