A Walk in the Woods

Coming Soon

Plot Summary

This hilarious comedy stars Robert Redford as the bestselling travel writer Bill Bryson, who makes the improbable decision to hike the 2,200 mile Appalachian Trail from Maine to Georgia.  Emma Thompson co-stars as Bryson’s wife who, fearing for her husband’s life out in the wilderness tries her level best to persuade him to remain in the comforts of the homestead.

The peace and tranquillity Bryson hopes to find, is anything but once he sets off with the only person willing to join his trek – his cantankerous friend Katz (Nick Nolte).  Thus begins an adventure like none other as they are forced to contend with everything from wild bears; weird and wacky fellow travellers; irate locals and just having to deal with each other.  Together they learn that some roads may be better left untraveled.
