Martin Sheen.

Martin Sheen, Yorick van Wa­genin­gen, Deb­o­rah Kara Unger, James Nes­bitt.

A GRIEV­ING pa­tri­arch walks in the foot­steps of his late son in the fourth di­rec­to­rial fea­ture of ac­tor Emilio Estevez, who once again casts his fa­ther Martin Sheen in front of the cam­era. The Way is a deeply per­sonal film for the Estevez fam­ily, who wanted to pay tribute to their Span­ish her­itage and the El Camino de San­ti­ago – an 800-kilo­me­tre pil­grim­age along the Span­ish-French bor­der. Tom (Sheen) is an Amer­i­can op­tometrist who dis­cov­ers his son Daniel (Estevez) has been killed in the Pyre­nees in a storm. He finds out Daniel per­ished on the first leg of the Camino and de­cides to com­plete the pil­grim­age in Daniel’s hon­our. The Way is a love letter to the idyl­lic north­ern Span­ish coun­try­side and the peo­ple who open their homes to the pil­grims but pac­ing is pedes­trian, just like the ac­tors. FAM­ILY WATCH: Swearing, No Sex, No Vi­o­lence.
