THE WAY (2011)
A film by Emilio Estevez
A California Doctor receives the bad news that his son has passed away on a hiking trip in France in the mountains called the Pyrenée. The walk is called the Camino de Santiago (The Way of St. James), a centuries-old pilgrimage over Spanish mountain country to the Cathedral de Santiago. Daniel (Emilio Estavez) was religious. Tom (Martin sheen) is definitely not. He flies to identify his son oversees the cremation and on the spot decided to finish what his son started to finish the walk all the way to Santiago. Oh yes the real father and son Martin and Emilio has made the trip in order to be inspired to write the film. I would of done it to it also was in memory of his grandfather that he wrote the film. Tom begins his journey and prefer to be along at the beginning but as his journey advances with other pilgrims. There is Joost (Yorick van Wageningen), a cheerful Dutchman, who Tom does his best to ditch but turns up again, Sarah (Deborah Kara Unger), an unhappily divorced woman from Canada who is trying to quit smoking, And Jack (James Nesbitt) an Irish writer, who embodies a jolly Irish dude. Going across the country has some beautiful shot and you might want to go there some day. This film you will find it uplifting and has a positive image to it. Well worth the look.
