The Way

This movie poster truly disappoints me.
Hello? Spain? Fantastic scenery.
This was the best you could do?
Budget must have been tight.

This one is not much better.

CA and I had our current NetFlix selection gathering dust all week, or longer. We do stream, but we're (CA, that is) still hanging on to the old-school: mail one back; receive the next movie in the que.

Anyway, we started this during dinner... I know. How truly civilized of us! But, it's Sunday night and we deserve to break all the rules tonight. Why? Just 'cuz.

Loved this movie. Of course, President Bartlett is a fantastic actor. Apparently Emilio Estevez wrote the screenplay based on a book by Jack Hitt, and EE directed and also stars (mostly as a prodigal son dead guy).

It's always good when CA and I find a movie/show that we can enjoy together.

It is really true that Europeans absolutely distrust all Romanians (gypsies). This film makes an effort to dispel that prejudice.

See what I mean?! And, this is just one frame from lovely cinematography.

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" 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.”Read More
