The best travel films for hikers and nature lovers to watch this weekend - Yahoo

While some may miss the bustling chaos of city life during the worldwide lockdown, others sheltering in place can't wait to break out of their cabins and into the great outdoors -- void of walls and screens.

It may be awhile before we can break free and run wild -- and in less than 6 feet of one another. But in the meantime, we can turn to storytellers and movie makers who have made some of the world's most stunning, natural surroundings into secondary characters in their films.

In many of the movies, a protagonist sets off on a solo adventure that becomes a rite of passage. In both "Wild" and "The Way," the main characters (played by Reese Witherspoon and Martin Sheen respectively) try to deal with grief and loss by hitting the trails on hiking trips.
