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.

Mistakes

When Chris is sleeping in his yellow car during the thunderstorm, he gets hit by a flash flood. Afterwards he abandons his car and removes his licence plates. His plates are: UW4-924. A few minutes later his parents decide to visit Chris in Atlanta. We then see a shot of a white car on the freeway, which has the exact same licence plate (UW4-924).

Trivia

While certain details of the story were altered for the confines of film, the characters Jan Burres played by Catherine Keener and Ronald Franz played by Hal Holbrook were both, according to research, entirely accurate. In fact when Jon Krakauer, the author of the book with the same name, contacted both people, they remembered Chris well and expressed great loss when learning of his death.
