After spending two decades in England, Bill Bryson (Robert Redford) returns to the U.S., where he decides the best way to connect with his homeland is to hike the Appalachian Trail with one of his oldest friends, Stephen Katz (Nick Nolte).
Fonda and Redford star as Addie Moore and Louis Waters, a widow and widower who've lived next to each other for years. The pair have almost no relationship, but that all changes when Addie tries to make a connection with her neighbor.
Newsroom drama detailing the 2004 CBS 60 Minutes report investigating then-President George W. Bush's military service, and the subsequent firestorm of criticism that cost anchor Dan Rather and producer Mary Mapes their careers.
In this new comedy adventure, celebrated travel writer, Bill Bryson (Robert Redford), instead of retiring to enjoy his loving and beautiful wife, Catherine (Dame Emma Thompson), and large and happy family, challenges himself to hike the Appalachian Trail - two thousand two hundred miles of America's most unspoiled, spectacular and rugged countryside from Georgia to Maine. The peace and tranquility he hopes to find, though, is anything but, once he agrees to being accompanied by the only person he can find willing to join him on the trek - his long-lost and former friend Stephen Katz (Nick Nolte), a down-on-his-luck serial philanderer who, after a lifetime of relying on his charm and wits to keep one step ahead of the law - sees the trip as a way to sneak out of paying some debts and sneak into one last adventure before its too late. The trouble is, the two have a completely different definition of the word, "adventure". Now they're about to find out that when you push yourself to the ...Written by

The book "A Walk in the Woods" was optioned in 1998 as a project to team Robert Redford and Paul Newman together for the third time. However, years of hurdles getting this movie made and Newman's declining health before his death in 2008 ended the potential Redford and Newman reunion. Newman was intended for the role of Stephen Katz. See more »

Worth watching with yourself
I really enjoyed this movie mixed of light comic touches and thought-provoking scenes. It's not a movie which wins over audience with dramatic turns and characterization. So I would recommend you to enjoy it alone or with someone who has similar patience as you. The story, as the name of the movie suggests, a walk in the wood, takes you for a causal walk into the nature. It leads you to look for the lost good qualities in human beings or make a good reflection on the past. This story is for me like a walk which makes me ponder over what adventures await in my future and how experience changes a person. There are a lot of interesting dialogues sparked with age-old memory and wisdom between these two characters: Katz and Bryson. They are grumpy, funny, and adorable. On top of that, the wood sceneries are gorgeous too.
