| Excellent!
I caught this film on Saturday at the SMMASH film festival in Excelsior, MN. It was completely sold out and the Director and lead actors were in attendance. I had heard of people hiking the Appalachean trail before and had heard of a documentary about a guy who made the hike last year that I thought might be this movie. Turns out this was a narrative and not a doc, but still excellent.

You would think that a movie about people walking wouldn't be very interesting, but they really did a good job focusing on the personal relationships on a life changing adventure. Accurately went through the ups and downs and it was obvious that Ben Wagner had been through some of these experiences himself. I wish there would have been a Q&A afterward so I could have asked him some questions about the making of the movie.

Slackpack steals many scenes. Christopher McCutchen is super funny. If you see this movie around, you should check it out.
