A Walk in the Woods (15)

Director Ken Kwapis. Adventure/Comedy/Drama


Robert Redford, Nick Nolte and Emma Thompson star in Ken Kwapis' (The US Office and Parks and Recreation) delightfully funny adaptation of Bill Bryson's international bestseller. Deciding to hike the notoriously tough Appalachian trail, Bryson (Redford) invites old pal Katz (Nolte), who turns up wheezing and overweight for a trip involving high altitudes, hardy terrain and... bears. Using their journey as a metaphor for the uncertainty of old age, with majestic footage of rural America, it's a hilarious, touching film with very enjoyable comic turns from Redford, Nolte, Emma Thompson (as Bryson’s wife), Nick Offerman and Kristen Schaal.

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

An entertaining, slightly slapstick film which was enjoyed by our audience.

Light on plot but good photography, acting and scenery.

Very entertaining, lots of laughs, and much enjoyed by the audience. Might want to consider using subtitles as some of the dialogue is slurred and heavily accented. Also recommend Blu-ray as the scenery is often stunning.
