FOX Beat: Emma Thompson stars in new film, A Walk in the Woods

The new movie, "A Walk in the Woods," is based on the memoir of an American who lived overseas for many years and tries to rediscover America by hiking the Appalachian Trail.

Robert Redford plays the man taking the journey with an old friend he hasn't seen in years.

Emma Thompson is Redford's British wife, who thinks both men are crazy for taking off on a journey of more than two-thousand miles.

Emma Thompson spoke with FOX 5 about the role and the real life inspiration.
