Emilio Estevez's "The Way" Opens Tomorrow



The Way," written and directed by Emilio Estevez, and starring Martin Sheen, opens Boston, MA, and Danvers, MA tomorrow. On tonight's ClearVoice we will be airing an exclusive interview with Sheen and Estevez about the film. Tune in at 8PM EST at www.CatholicTV.com

"The Way" is a powerful and inspirational story about family, friends, and the challenges we face while navigating this ever-changing and complicated world. Martin Sheen plays Tom, an American doctor who comes to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to collect the remains of his adult son (played by Emilio Estevez), killed in the Pyrenees in a storm while walking the Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way of Saint James. Rather than return home, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage to honor his son's desire to finish the journey. What Tom doesn't plan on is the profound impact the journey will have on him and his "California Bubble Life.”

Inexperienced as a trekker, Tom soon discovers that he will not be alone on this journey. On "The Way," Tom meets other pilgrims from around the world, each with their own issues and looking for greater meaning in their lives: a Dutchman (Yorick van Wageningen), a Canadian (Deborah Kara Unger) and an Irish writer (James Nesbitt), who is suffering from a bout of writer's block.

CatholicTV's President, Father Robert Reed, had the honor to host the premiere of “The Way” in Boston, MA.
THE WAY is not necessarily a 'religious' film, but it is deeply spiritual and so very human,” said Father Reed. “With moments of tragedy and anguish and with humor as well, it's about the way we live and move through life alongside those encountered on the road.  We are companions on this journey of life and 'The Way' will open your eyes to the deeper meaning of the twists and turns, the climbing and falling of the human pilgrimage.  For an old fashioned movie experience, some lasting lessons and a gentle lift, go see it.
From the unexpected and, oftentimes, amusing experiences along "The Way," this unlikely quartet of misfits creates an everlasting bond and Tom begins to learn what it means to be a citizen of the world again. Through Tom's unresolved relationship with his son, he discovers the difference between "the life we live and the life we choose."

THE WAY, written and directed by Emilio Estevez, was filmed entirely in Spain and France along the actual Camino de Santiago.

Watching Fr. Reed on CatholicTV Live and how wonderful you are talking about "The Way" and seeing so much support for it.

I have been a pilgrim since 2001 and can tell you it is a life changing journey.

It's wonderful to see that there are people out there who can make a movie about the inner journey without need for explosions, guns, cruelty or car chases... The Way is one movie worth seeing and supporting...
