#123movies #fmovies #putlocker #gomovies #solarmovie #soap2day Watch Full Movie Online Free – “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 American doctor who comes to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to collect the remains of his adult son (played by Emilio Estevez), killed in the Pyrenees in a storm while walking the Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way of Saint James. Rather than return home, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage to honor his son’s desire to finish the journey. What Tom doesn’t plan on is the profound impact the journey will have on him and his “California Bubble Life”. Inexperienced as a trekker, Tom soon discovers that he will not be alone on this journey. On his journey, Tom meets other pilgrims from around the world, each with their own issues and looking for greater meaning in their lives: a Dutchman (Yorick van Wageningen), a Canadian (Deborah Kara Unger) and an Irish writer (James Nesbitt), who is suffering from a bout of writer’s block. From the unexpected and, often times, amusing experiences along the way, this unlikely quartet of misfits creates an everlasting bond and Tom begins to learn what it means to be a citizen of the world again. Through Tom’s unresolved relationship with his son, he discovers the difference between “the life we live and the life we choose”.
Plot: When his son dies while hiking the famed Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route in the Pyrenees, Tom flies to France to claim the remains. Looking for insights into his estranged child’s life, he decides to complete the 500-mile mountain trek to Spain. Tom soon joins up with other travelers and realizes they’re all searching for something.

Understated and therefore very moving
This movie exceeded all expectations, which were already very high. All kudos to Emilio Estevez for an excellent screenplay and superb direction. The photography, too, was wonderful. I think this will go down as one of Martin Sheen’s best ever performances. He underplays his role (due to Emilio’s direction?) which makes it all the stronger. In fact, it’s the understated quality of the whole film that makes it very moving. It never descends into sentimentality but you still feel the grief of Martin Sheen’s character as he makes the pilgrimage his estranged dead son never completed. At the same time, there are a lot of funny moments, which lift it from becoming a depressing journey. The gradual coalescing of the four very different main characters into a unified group works very well. Each of them has a different reason for making the pilgrimage and, to begin with, they seem to have nothing in common, but it’s still very believable when they start to relate to each other. Emilio and his father Martin have every reason to be very proud of this film. It works on every level.
Just had the pleasure of watching this flick almost 5 years after its release -I gave it 10 stars because I like drama & this one has comedy laced throughout, with drama, great actors, and pith. It’s the kind of movie I like! Done well, filmed on location, with a wonderful cast & incredible backdrop. Never walked the Camino myself, but have been to the Pyrenees, Spain & France. Enchanting is but one way to describe it. What a wonderful journey which comes full-circle under difficult circumstances. This movie will make many want to walk The Way themselves after watching it -kudos to Emilio Estevez for finding such a great story, then doing such a bang-up job directing/filming it. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
