A Walk in the Woods is a watchable feel-good movie starring Robert Redford and Nick Nolte.
Based on the 1998 book/memoir of the same name by Bill Bryson, A Walk in the Woods takes its audience strolling down the Appalachian Trail. Led by the charming duo of Redford and Nolte, this feel-good film is a pleasant fall surprise. An aging Bill Bryson (Redford) finally decides hike to Appalachian Trail after living in Britain for the past two decades.
Bill is living peacefully in New Hampshire with his wife (Emma Thompson), but he wants to accomplish something more fulfilling in his aging life before he can’t. Catherine (Thompson) objects at first because of the dangers with the trail, but finally gives in. Bill wants to invite an old friend with him on the journey, unfortunately, all of them decline but one. That old pal is Stephen Katz (Nolte).
Stephen is in no shape to hike 2,000 miles, but Bill has no one else to take on the hike. The film proceeds into an adventure/comedy walk through the wilderness. The chemistry between Redford and Nolte shines and in the end, A Walk in the Woods is an easy trek.
A Walk in the Woods is rated R (Restricted). For language and some sexual references.
