The Way hits theaters on October 7th, 2011.

Cast: Martin Sheen, Deborah Kara Unger, Yorick van Wageningen, and James Nesbitt

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. Tom (SHEEN) is an affluent California doctor who arrives in St. Pied de Port, France to collect the ashes of his venturesome son, Daniel (ESTEVEZ), who perished during a freak storm in the Pyrenees Mountains. Arriving in a daze, Tom intends to turn right back around for the home Daniel once dubbed an isolating “bubble” — but at the last minute, he instead makes the most impulsive decision of his carefully ordered life. Following in his son’s footsteps, quite literally, Tom begins to walk the 500-mile Camino de Santiago, an ancient pilgrimage that for more than 1000 years has been made by millions of around the world for every conceivable reason, from sheer adventure to searching for answers. Out of shape and out of sorts, Tom stumbles from the trailhead, defiantly on his own. He doesn’t want solace, and he’s not so sure he believes in salvation. But try as he might to escape, he keeps running into unwanted company — including that of a sarcastic Canadian (DEBORAH KARA UNGER) trying to kick the habit, a hefty, hedonistic Dutchman (YORICK VAN WAGENINGEN) wining and dining his way through Spain, and a motor-mouthed Irish author (JAMES NESBITT) chasing the story that might blast through his writer’s block. Step by step, stunning mile after stunning mile, as Tom makes his way through incidents both frightening and funny — from raging rapids to Gypsy encounters — he can’t seem to help opening up to the breathtaking landscape, to his unavoidable companions and the new possibilities that now surround him at every turn. Suddenly, his misfit fellow travelers become his truest friends. Memories become his strength. And Tom begins to see that all the comedy, wonder and joy of the journey itself are what he was really after — and that this is just the beginning of going after his destination. Producers Distribution Agency and ARC Entertainment present an Elixir Films Production of THE WAY, a film written and directed by Emilio Estevez. The film is produced by David Alexanian and Estevez and stars Martin Sheen, Deborah Kara Unger, Yorick van Wageningen and James Nesbitt.

  1. Father & son… this is great!!!!! I was missing Emilio. Martin U R always the President of my heart. Emilio since U R directing now how about Men at Work 2. LOL. Anyway good luck with this movie.

  2. Really Great Film! I was at the New York City premiere last week. Martin Scheen and Emilio Estavez were there. Having done the Camino, I thought I'd enjoy this film because it's a walk down memory lane….in fact, the film can stand on it's own two legs. It was much better than expected, and a touching, often funny, and honest story. Ultreya…

  3. Just watched it. What an incredible movie.

    Free tip; Anyone who liked this movie should also watch "the Art of Travel". It's another truly great movie.

  4. It is my life-long dream to walk the Camino de Santiago. In the meantime, I can't wait to see this film. It has a beautiful soundtrack as well. I like everything about this film; so well done! Thank you for the journey and the inspiration.

    "Dear God please show us The Way."

  5. This is an excellent film which belies your negative comment. I for one am very impressed and glad Sheen's son made this film and did such a good job. Talent and determination at work!
    BTW, monk22yrs, how many films have you made? May we see them and critique them, as you seem to like to do?

  6. I'd recommend this film to anyone.  It does start a little clumsily at times, but after the first few scenes it hits its stride and it a thoughtful, restrained and touching film, well directed by Emilio Estevez and very well acted by the 4 principal actors.  

  7. One of the best films I have ever experienced about the Human Family under God and His ubiquitous Cross. I didn’t watch it. I EXPERIENCED IT. Ashes, grasses, mountain passes, peoples, marches, steeples, nothingness, everything, loyalties, incense, repentance, Providence and coastal GLORY.
    Forty days for the shooting of this film. Often a Biblical time-frame for the processing of great revelation!

  8. Fans of this movie also may want to check out 'The Journey' Starring Jason Flemyng, Lindsey Coulson and Duncan Pow. The writer/director was inspired by this movie. 

  9. This is an amazing movie. I initially watched it because I love Martin Sheen but it goes so much beyond that. I can watch it over and over and get more out of it each time.

  10. I watched this last night after watching"Wild"! I now have a real desire to go on a long, long walk. If you walk far enough away from your life you might just meet yourself coming back! Great life affirming movie, about how to avoid, and face, loss.

  11. Having walked the Camino de Santiago twice in 2010 and 2015 and going back next year 2020 ,i say to anybody of thinking of doing the walk go for it ,this life changing trip is something you will never forget ,most who the walk go back again and again,,,buen camino
