The Way Movie
Since its theatrical release in 2011, Emilio Estevez’s film THE WAY has been “running a quiet marathon” garnering millions of fans across all generations; widely admired by those who see the film as a rare work of art, uniquely balancing faith and doubt; sorrow and joy. And just as the Camino pilgrimage itself has been followed for a millennium to reveal some deeper revelation in one’s life—THE WAY also carries a similar impact for all who have seen it. And yet still, there is a new generation who will embrace this film. They’ve heard about the Camino but may have never seen the movie, certainly not in a theater setting. As Spring arrives, those who are yearning to travel after years of chaos are expressing their desire to begin their own personal “Caminos.” The opportunity to sit in a theater and “travel to Spain,” with friends, loved ones (and strangers) is what THE WAY is about, perhaps above all else. In 2023, THE WAY is the movie we all need, at a time when we need it the most.
