The Way

Martin Sheen plays Tom, an American doctor who comes to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to collect the remains of his adult son, killed in the Pyrenees in a storm while walking The Camino de Santiago. Driven by his profound sadness and desire to understand his son better, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage. Along the way he learns what it means to be a citizen of the world again and discovers the difference between “The life we live and the life we choose.”



CRITICAL NOTES

Funny, moving, hip and transcendent all at the same time, "The Way" is both deeply thoughtful and enormous fun to watch - Ann Hornaday, Washington Post
