The Way cover

Storyline:

From director Emilio Estevez and starring Martin Sheen comes a modern-day odyssey – the soulful journey of a man rocked by personal crisis who sets off on an epic mountain trek, thinking he is utterly lost, only to keep bumping into surprise moments of community, companionship and inspiration that begin to steer his way. This spirited road-movie-on-foot crosses territory that is alternately comic, adventurous and keenly moving, even as it becomes an unforeseen gift from a son to his father.

5 Visitor Reviews for The Way

  1. DeBorah Ann says:

    I have watched the movie myself and was especially enthusiastic about this movie for the main reason that my brother Ron experienced the “Camino” in 2011.
    I got a glimps of the real thing, knowing from first hand what the experience REALLY is. Nonetheless,it was a very inspiring movie and the main characters the Estevez father and son acting performances shared their talents in a most respectful way.In a way I discovered a side of my own brother which I had never seen before.And that makes me a proud little sister. Namaste.

    I watched the movie The Way and found it inspiring, touching, and quite beautiful. The characters all had their “wounds” and the movie showed how each of them through their journey together, began to find healing and peace. A really fabulous movie.

    I’ve seen it once and have been anticipating it’s release so I can soon share it with friends – AND watch it by myself also. I loved the movie even if it was more action-packed than any version of the ‘Camino’ I’ve ever heard about…It would probably take 3 or 4 ‘caminos’ to experience that many events… But even with the artistic license and dramatic purpose, it remains believeable and so enjoyable, especially to those of us who undertook the trek (in my case, a mere 10 months ago…an ETERNITY!). Thank you so much – “Senor/s Estivez” – for offering us a permanent reminder of a life altering time.

    I have seen The Way 3 times. I loved it and would definitely see it again. I am purchasing the DVD. I did the Camino (Portugese, not French). The depiction of the journey (physical, mental and spiritual) was very well captured. This could have been really schlocky, but it is just beautiful. My friends and family saw the movie, too, and they all loved it, and now they understand what exactly my husband, friend and I were doing over there in Spain. They want to do the Camino, too.

    I highly recommend the movie, and I highly recommend the pilgrimage – even if you are not religious or spiritual. We all need to get away from this crazy world once in a while.

    Congratulations on a wonderful job of depicting the Camino!

    Beautiful and inspiring movie. You want to make your own pilgrimage.
