I have great anticipation for the upcoming film “The Way”, directed by Emilio Estevez and starring Martin Sheen. It’s a fictional story filmed along the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in Spain.
I was blessed to spend more than 3 weeks walking the Camino in the spring of 2007 with my good friends Jim and Tom. It was a great experience and continues to have an impact on my life. I would like to walk the entire Camino some day, but until then, I hope this film will serve as a worthy reminder of that time.
So, take out your calendar and make a note to search out this film on September 30th. If you’re lucky enough to live in Ireland or the UK, you can see the film starting May 30th.
