"THE WAY" - American
Father – Martin Sheen and son – Emilio Estevez come together to tell the story, in which Sheen plays Tom Avery, a Californian eye doctor whose views on life don't always coincide with those of his son Daniel – played by Estevez himself. Daniel believes in living life, so he abandons his studies to go travelling, to walk the Camino de Santiago, 800 miles over the Pyrenees from France to the village in Spain where the bones of St James are believed to be buried. But tragedy strikes; Daniel is accidentally killed on the walk and when Tom goes to France to identify his son's body and cremate it, instead of returning home to America, he decides to walk the Camino in honour of Daniel. It's a solo journey for him but somehow people keep attaching themselves to him and he is soon walking in a group of other walkers. “The scenery is beautiful, the acting, particularly from Sheen and van Wageningen (one of the other walkers) is tops”.
