Exquisitely shot, robustly acted and deeply felt, it's a potent ode to wanderlust and human pluck."Total Film 4 stars out of 5 -- "As the wide-eyed hero, Hirsch is excellent....This is Penn's big auteur statement on our times....It has more soul in its sprawl than any other film this year."Uncut "With its swooping hunger for landscape and new experience, it plunges headlong into the giddy, passionate convictions of its hero..."Sight and Sound 5 stars out of 5 -- "Director and book adapter Sean Penn has the greatest eye for composition of any successful actor turned film-maker since Clint Eastwood..."Ultimate DVD "Sean Penn's fascinating screen version of the Jon Krakauer book of the same name....[Stewart] gives an agreeably vital performance that could still be predictive of things to come in her career."Wall Street Journal0.2284328
