Austrian Heinrich Harrer (Brad Pitt) was a skiing champion and passionate climber who decided to
climb Nanga Parbat in British India. When WWII broke out, Harrer and his team were arrested and
lodged in Dehra Dun's P.O.W. Camp. He successfully escaped along with Peter Aufschnaiter (David
Thewlis), and they ended up in the holy city of Lhasa where Harrer befriended the Dalai Lama. He
settled into this strange new way of life and he and the Dalai Lama became firm friends, but nothing
prepared him for the devastation which descended when Communist China decided to attack. This
true story depicts a life turned around and takes the audience on a journey they will never forget.

Into the Wild was directed by Sean Penn and was released to critical acclaim in 2007. Christopher
McCandless (Emile Hirsch) is a grade-A student and athlete at Emory University with his entire life
ahead of him. When he decides to abandon his possessions and gives his entire $24,000 savings
account to charity so that he can hitchhike to Alaska, it comes as a shock to everyone. Along the
way, Christopher encounters a series of characters that shape his life and change the way he thinks.
Into the Wild is a powerful film which takes viewers on an emotional and touching journey as they
share Christopher’s life-changing experience.

Peter Jackson’s Lord of the Rings trilogy made movie history when they were released between

Ring, and thus ensure the destruction of the dark Lord Sauron. This epic journey changed the lives of
every character involved and remains the highest grossing movie trilogy of all time.
