‘The Way’ with Martin Sheen – a Movie Review

Watching “The Way” with father-son team Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez was a wonderful way to celebrate the closing of one year and the beginning of another, because “The Way” is a moving and inspirational story of endings and new beginnings.
Although Catholic in much of its story line, “The Way” transcends Catholicism in its depiction of a spiritual journey of healing and discovery that should appeal to Christians and non-Christians alike.
Tom (Martin Sheen), a father, loses his only son Daniel (Emilio Estevez), a young man who turned away from his doctorate to experience life first-hand. Going to collect his son’s remains in the French Pyrenees, Tom discovers Daniel was on a spiritual pilgrimage to the church of Santiago de Compostela, where many think the relics of St. James the Apostle are buried. Tom makes the impulsive decision to have Daniel cremated so he can continue Daniel’s journey with Daniel’s ashes.
The movie is about the people Tom encounter along the way, the tenuous relationships he forms against his will, and the discoveries he makes along the way about himself and Daniel.
Emilio Estevez, who wrote and directed “The Way,” has crafted an inspirational tale set against the beauty of France and Spain on the pilgrim paths of the Camino.
