“The Way is a powerful and inspirational story about family, friends, and the challenges we face while navigating this ever changing and complicated world.”
Director: Emilio Estevez | Cast: Martin Sheen, Emilio Estevez, Deborah Kara Unger, Yorick van Wageningen, James Nesbitt, Tcheky Karvo, Spencer Garrett and Angela Molina | 2011
Emilio Estevez’s The Way was inspired by his son, stars his father, is dedicated to his grandfather, and was written and directed by himself. It’s a sweet and sincere family pilgrimage, even if a little too long and obvious. Audiences seeking uplift will find it here.
The story involves a California doctor named Tom (played by Martin Sheen), whose son Daniel dies while attempting to complete the Camino de Santiago (The Way of St. James), a centuries-old pilgrimage over Spanish mountain country to the Cathedral de Santiago.
Daniel was apparently religious. Tom is definitely not. He flies to Spain to identify his son’s body, oversees its cremation and decides on the spot to scatter the ashes along the Way that Daniel planned to trek. In a nice touch, he even uses Daniel’s backpack and hiking gear.
Enjoy a selection of succulent tapas; Spanish pizza and a complimentary drink prepared by the creative and talented chef, Alex Oliver. A cash bar is available. This is a celebration of good food, an inspiring movie and great company. Proceeds of this year’s showing of The Way will go to the Plett StreetSmart Programme.
