Let’s Go to the Movies: Week of May 17, 2021: The Way

Uplifting, inspiring, touching. Get ready for a very personal but beautiful journey on the Camino de Santiago.

The Way is a 2010 American-Spanish drama directed, produced, and written by Emilio Estevez and starring Martin Sheen, Deborah Kara Unger, James Nesbitt, and Yorick van Wageningen.

The film honors the Camino de Santiago and promotes the traditional pilgrimage. Saying he did not want the film to appeal to only one demographic, Emilio Estevez called the film “pro-people, pro-life, not anti-anything”.
