A Walk in the Woods

September 2, 2015
"A Walk in the Woods" is witty and features lots of clever banter between the main characters, Bill Bryson and Stephen Katz. Robert Redford and Nick Nolte are an unlikely pair, with Redford playing the straight man, author Bryson, and Nolte providing the comedy relief of the movie. It is as much a [...]

Northfork has been around since 1776 but appears to be doomed. Unfortunately, the film is almost hopelessly impossible to follow. It goes [...]
