Movie Night

Long Way Round is a documentary that follows Ewan McGregor and Charlie Boorman on a motorcycle adventure from London, England to New York, New York going east.

It chronicles the pair formulating an idea, assembling a staff, acquiring equipment, and traveling around the world. From the Chunell through Belgium and Germany went by quickly. Things slowed down considerably through Ukraine and Kazakhstan. The journey continued on through Russia, Alaska, Canada, and finally, the United States. Since this originally aired on television in Britain, it is broken up into episodes. This really doesn't detract from the adventure and makes it possible to watch in smaller bites. Expect to have your preconceived notions about the Eastern European counties challenged. This two disc set is perfect for a weekend's worth of entertainment.
