The Way of St. James–Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez’s new film

How exciting! Check out this excerpt from catholicnewsagency.com’s article detailing Emilio Estevez and Martin Sheen’s latest career choice:

Director Emilio Estevez and his father, Martin Sheen, have debuted their new film, “The Way,” in Santiago de Compostela, Spain. The movie, which focuses on the Way of St. James, is being dubbed “the great film of the Year of St. James.”

Culture Minister of Andalusia Roberto Varela remarked that the movie is “a beautiful story” that perfectly represents what the Way of St. James means.  “It exemplifies the physical and exterior journey, but above all the journey of interior transformation,” he added.

Filmed during September, October and November of 2009 along the ancient Way of St. James that leads to the city of Santiago de Compostela, “The Way” recounts the story of Tom Avery, an American doctor who travels to France after learning of the death of his son, killed in the Pyrenees while walking the Way of St. James.  He decides to finishes his son’s journey and experiences his own spiritual awakening.

The film was shot entirely on location, and aims to be shown in 150 theatres across Spain and later in U.S. theaters.
