Max has an active imagination, who will throw a fit if others don't go along with what he wants. Following an incident with his sister Claire and her friends, Max throws a tantrum when his mother pays more attention to her boyfriend than to him - runs away from home. Wearing his wolf costume at the time, Max not only runs away physically, but runs toward a world in his imagination. This world, an ocean away, is inhabited by large wild beasts, including Carol who has the same temperament as Max. Instead of eating Max like they normally would with creatures of his type, the wild things befriend Max after he proclaims himself a king who can magically solve all their problems

In 1959, Truman Capote was a popular writer for The New Yorker. He learns about the horrific and senseless murder of a family of four in Holcomb, Kansas. Inspired by the story, Capote and his partner, Harper Lee, travel to the town to do research for an article. However, as Capote digs deeper into the story, he is inspired to expand the project into what would be his greatest work, "In Cold Blood." He arranges extensive interviews with the convicted killers, especially with Perry Smith. However, his feelings of compassion for Perry conflicts with his need for closure for his book which only an execution can provide. That conflict and the mixed motives for both interviewer and subject make for a troubling experience that would produce an literary account that would redefine modern non-fiction
Into the Wild by Sean Penn( Visual )

39 editions published between 2007 and 2017 in 3 languages and held by 2,766 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
