Synopsis



Legendary actor Robert Redford sets off for A WALK IN THE WOODS as Bill Bryson, based on the 1998 travel writer’s best-selling memoir.

Upon his arrival back in the United States following two decades in the UK, Bryson wants to find a way to reconnect with his homeland.  Impulsively he decides to hike a section of the longest continuous footpath in the world, The Appalachian Trail, 1000 arduous miles stretching from Maine to Georgia, an expedition men half his age struggle to complete.

Fearing for his life, his wife Cathy (Emma Thompson) refuses to allow him to do a solo trek but is unsuccessful in persuading any of his friends to accompany him.  When his old buddy Katz (Nick Nolte), a crude, overweight, recovering alcoholic, calls him out of the blue and offers to accompany him, Bryson has no choice other than to accept.

Thus begins an adventure as they encounter weird and wonderful characters and face hilarious trials and tribulations along the way. The men gamely persevere and together they learn that some roads are better left untravelled.
