A Walk in the Woods (2015)

Ken Kwapis's fact-based comedy-drama starring Robert Redford, Nick Nolte and Emma Thompson. After awkward encounters on a TV chat show and at a funeral, feted travel writer and non-fiction author Bill Bryson goes for a short stroll near his rural New Hampshire home, where he comes across a waymarker for the Appalachian Trail. Returning home, he announces to his incredulous wife Catherine his attention to tackle the Trail, which runs over 2100 miles from the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia to Maine. Ignoring Catherine's objections, Bryson invites his friends to join him. The only person interested is Stephen Katz, a coarse and scurrilous old pal who decades ago proved a difficult travelling companion, is now an extremely unfit recovering alcoholic - and wasn't even invited in the first place. Despite this, the two fly to Georgia to start their six-month walk in the woods.
