The movie “The Way’, directed by Emilio Estevez and starring Martin Sheen, is about one man’s physical journey on the Camino de Santiago and about his interior journey of discovery. What he came to was the understanding and tolerance of others’ shortcomings and, perhaps more importantly, an understanding and tolerance of his own.
I told you that I already have a propensity to like this movie, since it is over much of the same route that I walked a few years ago. I saw it last Saturday and I like it a lot. Wonderful scenery that I remember well. It is moving, emotional, deep, funny in places, hokey in a few places, but overall, a movie that I would recommend and that I will see again. When it comes to a movie house near you, take the time to see it. I think that you will be glad that you did.
