A Walk In The Woods
February 22nd 2016 | Entertainment One | DVD
Based on the international best seller by Bill Bryson, A Walk In The Woods is a heart-warming adventure that sees two long lost friends reunite on an intrepid trek across 2,180 miles of America’s most rugged, yet beautiful countryside.
Upon his arrival back in the United States following two decades in the UK, Bryson (Robert Redford) wants to find a way to reconnect with his homeland. Impulsively he decides to hike a section of The Appalachian Trail; the longest continuous footpath in the world which stretches from Maine to Georgia, and an expedition men half his age struggle to complete.
Fearing for his life, his wife Cathy (Emma Thompson) refuses to allow him to do a solo trek but is unsuccessful in persuading any of his friends to accompany him. When his old buddy Katz (Nick Nolte), a crude, overweight, recovering alcoholic, calls him out of the blue and offers to accompany him Bryson gets more than he bargained for.
Join Bill and Katz for A Walk In The Woods as they encounter wonderful and wacky characters and face the highs and lows that both the trail, and middle age, have to offer.
