The final running time of Sean Penn‘s Into The Wild (Paramount Classics, 9.21) — the story of would-be Alaskan nature dweller Chris McCandless — is two hours and 28 minutes. There’s no such thing as a good movie that runs too long or a bad movie that runs too short, but 148 minutes is…well, attention-getting. Penn is the director, writer and producer. The cast includes Emile Hirsch, Marcia Gay Harden, William Hurt, Hal Holbrook, Catherine Keener, Kristen Stewart and Vince Vaughn.
