Emile Hirsch – Into the Wild (2007)
“It was a very hard thing for me to do,
I was sad to be leaving him.”
I love this scene because you can see the emotion in Ron, knowing that he will probably never see Chris again, even if he survived his journey. The lonely old man found a friend in Chris, someone he could talk to, do exciting things with, and overall make his life better, and now has to deal with life without him in it again. Hal portrayed him brilliantly.

“Two years he walks the earth. No phone, no pool, no pets, no cigarettes. Ultimate freedom. An extremist. An aesthetic voyager whose home is the road. Escaped from Atlanta. Thou shalt not return, ‘cause “the West is the best.” And now after two rambling years comes the final and greatest adventure. The climactic battle to kill the false being within and victoriously conclude the spiritual pilgrimage. Ten days and nights of freight trains and hitchhiking bring him to the Great White North. No longer to be poisoned by civilization he flees, and walks alone upon the land to become lost in the wild. - Alexander Supertramp May 1992”
