Today I took my dad to see Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez in The Way. In case you don't know what the
Camino de Santiago is go here. In English it means the Way of St. James as in James the apostle.
The movie is deceptively simple, yet quite deep when you think about it. Catholicism is lovely in this movie. There are priests being priestly, nuns, statues of Mary, rosaries, crosses, Mass, cathedrals, and prayer. Not only are there complicated characters, but the scenery of France and Spain is beautiful and peaceful. You won't see car chases in this movie, because people are walking.
This is a movie of a grieving father and broken people searching for healing, for restoration. See forgiveness and mercy and bring tissue.
