A Walk in the Woods
Dir: Ken Kwapis USA 2015 104 mins Cert: 15A
Starring: Robert Redford, Nick Nolte, Emma Thompson
After two decades of living in the UK, renowned travel writer Bill Bryson (Robert Redford) returns to America with his English wife Cathy (Emma Thompson). In an attempt to find a way to reconnect with his homeland, he impulsively decides to hike the Appalachian Trail, a trek of over 2,000 miles stretching from Maine to Georgia. With Cathy protesting against the idea of Bill doing the trip solo, an out-of -the-blue call from old friend Katz (Nick Nolte), offering to accompany him, seems like the perfect solution. But as their journey unfolds, this odd couple realise that they may have underestimated the scale of the adventure they have undertaken. Based on Bill Bryson’s best-selling 1998 memoir, A Walk in the Woods is a gentle comedy that combines breath-taking scenery with the charming chemistry of its two veteran stars, who are clearly enjoying themselves.
“...a gentle examination of friendship and man’s relationship with himself, others and nature; although these ideas are part of the scenery, with knock-about humour the
main event.” - Eye for Film
