The film stars Cate Blanchett as 60 Minutes producer Mary Mapes (upon whose memoir the script is based), and movie legend Robert Redford as news legend Rather, and it's imminently watchable thanks to the investigative format and the sterling cast that's been assembled.

Not only is this a must-see movie for her stellar performance, but it is a reminder of a time when real investigating was the goal for television--and print--news. Mistakes were made and heads did roll, but not without some loss of journalistic ideals.

Though often remote, the Appalachian Trail was a route like any other. Ordinary roads ran near it and intersected it as it wound its way around towns, over rivers and across forested valleys. What was to stop me from tracking the trail by . . . car?

Robert Redford and Nick Nolte co-star in the film "A Walk In the Woods," which is based on a book of the same name by Bill Bryson. It is an aimless film about two disparate men who team up to walk the Appalachian Trail, a trek of some seventeen hundred miles.

This week the film A Walk in the Woods, based on Bill Bryson's 1998 best-selling book, comes out in theaters. Sierra Club radio host Orli Cotel spoke with director Ken Kwapis about working (and walking) in the woods with Hollywood icons Robert Redford and Nick Nolte, and how the film changed his relationship to the outdoors. The following excerpt is adapted from their interview.

'A Walk in the Woods': Negotiating Nature on the Appalachian Trail

Joseph Cooper | Posted 09.02.2015 | Books
Joseph Cooper

The movie adaptation of A Walk in the Woods is on solid footing with Bill Bryson's chronicle of the struggles, discomforts, and deprivations he endured -- and gratifications he derived -- as he explored the Appalachian Trail in the spring and summer of 1996. The book conveys the trepidations he experienced -- the perils encountered, and imagined.

Nick Nolte grabs this film and walks away with honors. Every second that he is on screen is memorable. A Walk in the Woods is a sensitive, delicate, seamless comedy. Not the guffawing laugh fest implied in its horrible trailer.

I interviewed Barry Levinson a few days before 9/11 regarding his heist comedy, "Bandits." Released a month later, the film's askew humor failed to draw big audiences from an American public largely still in mourning, in spite of strong critical response. Levinson proved a wonderful conversationalist during our time together...
