The Way--A Movie

Martin Sheen stars in this film directed by his son, Emilio Estevez. Sheen plays a doctor whose son dies while on a pilgrimage in Spain. Sheen's character decides to finish the pilgrimage for his son.

Of the movie, Sheen told reporters, “It is hard for Hollywood to get their head wrapped around a film like this… Hollywood now makes movies targeted at 16-year-old boys. They have stopped making films for adults.”

That in itself is reason enough to see it.

"The Way" is only going to be in a few theaters. Check out their website to see where it will be playing.

I am looking forward to seeing this movie. I have read a couple of books about that pilgrimage. God bless!

Really looking forward to seeing this - we'll probably be doing a write-up about it next week on our blog, By Way of Beauty. Please come check us out - I think you'd enjoy our posts!

I'd like to read those books too.

Thanks, Matthew! I'll have to stop by!

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
