Interesting story premise with great promises on life enlightenment ... and did not disappoint.

Buried treasure has surfaced again in the movie "The Way". KCLS has 30 copies, which indicates to me that originally there was quite a demand for the movie. Maybe you didn't see it though. You can have a copy within days if you placed a hold today August 1, 2014. The movie stars Martin Sheen as a father who is on a journey. I really am reluctant to add any more details. You can expect the movie to be entertaining and at the same time inspirational. Since I saw the movie, I am surprised how often I reflect back on what I gained from watching "The Way". As always, thanks for reading the above.
PS: I should have mentioned that Martin Sheen's son Emilio Estevez is the Director. It goes without saying, I was impressed with his work.

Interesting movie by Emilio Estevez. It starred his father who played his father not a far stretch. I was entertained by the many possibilities the movie touched on.

What a wonderful movie ! having read the pilgrimage books by Robert Sibley and others it was great to see the video footage along the Camino De Santiago and in the churches and cathedrals. The coverage of Finisterre was more pleasant than in the books. Sheen's snap decision to walk the 800 K was somewhat ill advised. I understand that 3 to 6 months training is usual and even then the pilgrims run into major blister,muscle and joint problems. In this movie, the blistering pace, pun intended, was not to be believed. If the pain and hardships along the Camino had been emphasized the apparent religious reconvertion at the end would have been more realistic. Anyhow, God Bless Hollywood: we liked it

This is a surprisingly entertaining film! Curmudgeonly father, Martin Sheen, fulfils his deceased son's wish to complete a spiritual pilgrimmage. Along the way, we meet a few other pilgrims including a bon-vivant Dutch fellow and an angry Canadian woman. They respond well to her anger.

a very enjoyable movie and soundtrack. I bet Emilio and his dad had a great time making this movie. I would recommend this movie to anyone.

Well made film. Martin Sheen carried the whole thing well but some of the supporting players were not up to the job. The scenery was interesting.

Jack: You know, when I was an undergraduate at Trinity College, Dublin, I wanted to be W.B. Yeats or James Joyce. But good writers usually die broke, so after I left college, I wrote for travel mags. Thought I'd do that for a while, put some money away and then get down to the novel. 20 years later, here I am, still writing for travel magazines. I'm not feeling sorry for myself. It's the life I chose.
Tom: Jack, you write whatever you want about all this, what you saw, how you felt. You write it like it happened. You write the truth.
Jack: I'll do my best.

Monolith got the best quote that "You don't choose a life, Dad. You live one." Here are a few others:

Sarah: Yeah, well, we keep walking at this pace, quitting isn't gonna be the problem. Surviving will be. Doesn't this guy (referring to Tom) ever stop to smell the flowers? This isn't a race.
Joost: No, it isn't.
Sarah: Then why does it pxzz me off so much that I haven't seen him
stop to take a break? I mean, why does something that should be inspirational make me so... angry? Totally irrational.
Joost: Same could be said for this entire journey.
Sarah: Wonder how old he is.
Joost: Older than us.

Daniel: "You should fly with me." Tom: "What?" Daniel: "You should fly with me." Tom: "Yeah, right." Daniel: "Turn the car around, pack a bag... grab your passport, forget your golf clubs... C'mon, a father son trip - it'll be fun." Tom: "...When you comin' back?" Daniel: "I don't know." Tom: "So you don't have a plan." Daniel: "We agreed that if I let you take me to the airport, you wouldn't lecture me about how I'm ruining my life." Tom: "I lied. ...You know, most people don't have the luxury of just picking up and leaving it all behind, Daniel." Daniel: "Well I'm not most people. If I don't have your blessing, that's fine. Don't judge this - don't judge me." Tom: "My life here might not seem like much to you, but it's the life I choose." Daniel: "You don't choose a life, Dad... you live one."
