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.
