Into the Wild

Into the Wild (2007)

Ending / spoiler

Chris (Emile Hirsch) dies of starvation, caused by eating a poisonous plant, in the bus in Alaska. Before dying, he imagines what it would be like if he were reunited with his family; he writes in a page of one of his books: "Happiness is real only when shared." Two weeks later, a couple of moose hunters stumble upon the bus and find his body. Chris's sister, Carine, takes her brother's ashes to the eastern seaboard in September 1992. One of the last images of the film is a photo taken by the real Chris McCandless of himself sitting outside the bus.
