The Way () - Rotten Tomatoes
The Way is a Spanish drama film directed, produced and written by Emilio Estevez, starring his father Martin Sheen, Deborah Kara Unger, James Nesbitt. This serious and thoughtful—and maybe great—film is quite the labor of the sign of the cross at the Mass for Pilgrims at the end of the way. Editorial Reviews. Review.

I really enjoyed this book! I like how both of their memoirs are preserved and entwined.
The back and forth voices aren't too much. I was glad to have seen the movie, so that I could better app My husband and I watched "The Way" and really liked the movie I was glad to have seen the movie, so that I could better appreciate the story of the filming.
I'm not much of a celebrity gossip follower, but I thought I knew the basics of these two actors. Instead, I learned a great deal about them and their amazing adventures. I don't agree with all of their choices in life, but I was very impressed with their honesty and openness in the book.
The result explains the history of the Estevez clan's transformation from working class Dayton, OH to the theaters of New York to, eventually, Hollywood.
The story is as surprising as it is inspirational - but the history is not all moonlight and roses. Sheen drags Emilio around the world and back again, often breaking down, and struggling with alcohol addiction and spirituality. Sheen never saw himself as a star, from the beginning needing to take the next job in order to keep his family fed and clothed.
When Emilio becomes a star in his own right, largely on his own merit, he falls into the same trap as his father - needing to bring up young kids while attempting to navigate a budding Hollywood career.
Instead of choosing a role, eventually the roles choose you. D2 - The Mighty Ducks.
Along the Way: The Journey of a Father and Son
Through it all the story of the making of The Way is interspersed with the interconnected life stories of both father and son. It is here where we see the fully formed characters, now generally triumphant over most of their lives' various, substantial hurdles, successful and in tune with the professional status they have achieved.
Though the West Wing is not mentioned, what is not said is implied: Martin Sheen found his comfort zone - and what is said, his conversion to AA and his rediscovery of his father's Catholicism, backs this up.
Emilio Estevez, upon making The Way, had transformed himself from Brat-Packer to a successful independent film writer, director and producer of deeply personal stories. A deeply moving memoir that certainly could include more, but ultimately satisfies. Have never read a 'co-written' bio.

- The Way: interview with Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez
Although it had a ghost writer Hope Edelman, ,both their thoughts and personalities come through strongly. And has been since the stone age. Martin comes across as a very emotional man,who didn't have the career he should have had.
Estevez laughs heartily at this. He was playing a very conservative guy. Very cut off, not necessarily the friendliest guy. So [the role] was against his better instincts.
Meanwhile, we had a movie to make. So it was a distraction. But how do you change who somebody is? I just had to bring him back on track when we were rolling. Today, they have returned to Santiago de Compostela, where I interview them, separately, in a monastery converted into a hotel.
There is no shortage of interest in Sheen, who has produced some of his best work in his later years. Estevez, too, seems to be enjoying a late-career renaissance. Sheen had a small part in Bobby. Initially Estevez wanted his father to play a more pivotal role — the manager of the hotel in which Kennedy was shot. But at the time Sheen was in the thick of filming The West Wing, so a larger part represented too much commitment. And I was very grateful.
End Scene The Way | Camino de Santiago Forum
It was great fun. Sheen plays his unsympathetic father. And she did the scene and it was magnificent. When they returned to Los Angeles, Estevez co-wrote and starred in a high-school play about Vietnam veterans called Echoes of an Era. And when he invited us to come see this play, I was astonished.
He had this very emotional scene, and the hairs stood up on the back of my neck. And I began to realise: He had that same deep and personal thing.

Which is what all of us have to do, but artists particularly. Sheen was subsequently fired. Charlie is three years his junior and enjoyed great success early in his career, notably in Platoon, released inwhen he was 21, and, the following year, in Wall Street. And I make wine.
Emotionally he still is. One of them was on camera — the opening scene of Apocalypse Now.
