Into The Wild

Hard-drinking American playwright Eugene O'Neil isn't exactly known for his comedies--he only wrote one--but Ah, Wilderness is a real knee slapper, with prostitutes and drunken uncles peppering a story about coming of age in a New England town.17-year-old Richard likes to read subversive books. He also likes the neighbor's daughter, but those darned books get in the way. Everything turns out well in the end, with some laughs along the way, in a comedy firmly rooted in the grit and humor of real life.
