- 2 The impressive cast of young actors is includes Emilie Hirsch ("Into the Wild"), Olivia Thirlby ("Juno") and Max Minghella ("The Social Network").
- 3 Director Chris Gorack first turned heads with the low-budget but highly-disturbing Sundance hit "Right at Your Door."
Bet You Didn't Know
Emile Hirsch earned raves and awards for playing a doomed hiker in "Into the Wild," but the tragedy of that true-life story hasn't stopped Hirsch from going on his own adventures. In 2010, he climbed to the peak of Mount Kilimanjaro -- 19,341 feet above sea level — in Tanzania alongside actress Jessica Biel and rapper Lupe Fiasco.
