A Walk in the Woods

Based on the acclaimed bestseller, "A WALK IN THE WOODS is a jolly good time, sparking dozens of chuckles and strong laughs." - Hollywood Reporter

"In 'A Walk in the Woods,' Robert Redford shows he can still play well with others.

One other, particularly: Nick Nolte, who, as the lifelong reprobate Stephen Katz, accompanies Redford's Bill Bryson on the Appalachian Trail, a trip that is as funny as it is unwise, and an acting partnership that may seem highly unlikely but turns out to be chemically correct. Based on the real-life Bryson's travel memoir of 1998, 'A Walk in the Woods' is about age and maturity and how they're not necessarily connected.

"When the footloose Bryson decides he needs to clear out the post-midlife cobwebs by hiking the AT -- which stretches 2,200 miles from Georgia to Maine -- his understandably bewildered wife (Emma Thompson) says if you must. But you can't go alone. To her relief, Bryson can't find anyone nuts enough to devote six months or more to a physical ordeal that would tax a man a third of Bryson's age. And then the even more unfit Katz -- with whom Bryson fell out years before -- rises to the challenge. So to speak.

"'Walk' is essentially a road/buddy movie and as such is quirkily episodic. One chapter involves Bryson's preparation for his trip and purchasing of equipment from an obsessive clerk (Nick Offerman) at a camping store; there's a hiker (Kristen Schaal) whom Katz and Bryson can't seem to shake or get to shut up; and the owner of a trailside motel (Mary Steenburgen), with whom a few sparks fly with Bryson. Directed by Ken Kwapis ('The Office,' 'Parks and Recreation'), 'A Walk in the Woods' -- between the glorious vistas of the Appalachian Trail and the less-exalted pictures of Redford and Nolte lumbering northward -- has barely a dull moment." - Newsday
