I remember reading the book when I was in uni. It had a profound effect on me especially because I was going through a quarter life crisis too. I did remotely consider leaving it all and travel to some remote part of Asia. Now that I’m a bit older (hopefully, a little wiser too) I’m wondering if the movie will have a similar impact. So I’m looking out for this. Besides, I want to see if Sean Penn can impress me as a writer-director as he has as an actor too.
