This soundtrack is one of the most enjoyable musical experiences I have ever had… Close your eyes and you can almost see Chris as he travels across America.” –G-Pop

 

While in the midst of Awards Season, we dedicate this Throwback Thursday to Into The Wild (2007), featuring the Golden Globe®-nominated score by Michael Brook!  The score follows a young man from a well-to-do family, Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsch), who, in April 1992, hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley.  He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself (Amazon).

Into The Wild film, writer/director Sean Penn’s screen adaptation of the best-selling novel by the same name, received two Academy Award® nominations for Best Performance by An Actor In A Supporting Role (Hal Holbrook) and Best Achievement In Film Editing (Jay Cassidy).  INTO THE WILD movie is available now On Demand (get it on iTunes).

Don’t forget to listen to Michael’s latest score on the Academy Award®- and Golden Globe®-nominated film, Brooklyn, starring Saoirse Ronan!
