The movie opened in Boise last October, at the Flicks.

“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 irascible American doctor who comes to France to deal with the tragic loss of his son (played by Emilio Estevez). Rather than return home, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage “The Way of St. James” (Camino de Santiago) pilgrimage route to honor his son’s desire to finish the journey. What Tom doesn’t plan on is the profound impact this trip will have on him. Through unexpected and oftentimes amusing experiences along “The Way,” Tom discovers the difference between “the life we live and the life we choose.”

“The Way” was filmed entirely in Spain and France along the actual Camino de Santiago. Learn more about the two (northern and southern) routes that pass through the Basque Country as pilgrims head west to their ultimate destination in Galicia.
