Movie Trailer: Emilio Estevez’s “The Way” starring Martin Sheen
I’m really looking forward to seeing this film:
The website for the film describes the story behind the film, with star Martin Sheen undertaking the trek through Spain and later discussing the possibilities of a movie about the fabled pilgrimage trail with his son Emilio. This film is the result. It opens in the U.S. in October and is now playing in the U.K. and Ireland.
The Way” is an inspirational story about family, friends, and the challenges of navigating a complicated world. Martin Sheen plays Tom, an American doctor who comes to France to collect the remains of his adult son (played by Emilio Estevez), who died while walking the Camino de Santiago, also known as “The Way of Saint James.”
Embarking on the historical pilgrimage to honor his son’s memory, Tom meets other pilgrims from around the world: a Dutchman (Yorick van Wageningen), a Canadian (Deborah Kara Unger) and an Irishman (James Nesbitt). Eventually, Tom discovers the difference between “the life we live and the life we choose.”
