The Way is a 2010 English-language Comedy Drama motion picture directed by Peter Weir and produced by Peter Weir, Joni Levin, Duncan Henderson, Nigel Sinclair and Scott Rudin under the banner of National Geographic Films in collaboration with Spitfire Pictures, Imagenation Abu Dhabi and Film Fund Luxembourg. The Way is a powerful and inspirational story about family, friends and the challenges we face while navigating this ever-changing and complicated world. Martin Sheen plays Tom, an American doctor who comes to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to collect the remains of his adult son (played by Emilio Estevez), killed in the Pyrenees in a storm while walking the Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way of Saint James. Rather than return home, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage to honor his son's desire to finish the journey. What Tom doesn't plan on is the profound impact the journey will have on him and his California Bubble Life. Inexperienced as a trekker, Tom soon discovers that he will not be alone on this journey. On his journey, Tom meets other pilgrims from around the world, each with their own issues and looking for greater meaning in their lives: a Dutchman (Yorick van Wageningen), a Canadian (Deborah Kara Unger) and an Irish writer (James Nesbitt), who is suffering from a bout of writer's block. From the unexpected and, often times, amusing experiences along the way, this unlikely quartet of misfits creates an everlasting bond and Tom begins to learn what it means to be a citizen of the world again. Through Tom's unresolved relationship with his son, he discovers the difference between the life we live and the life we choose. Written by The Way. The way features Jim Sturgess in the lead role along with an ensemble cast including Ed Harris, Saoirse Ronan, Colin Farrell, Martin Sheen, Emilio Estevez and Deborah Kara Unger. The screenplay is written by Peter Weir and Keith Clarke which is inspired from The Long Walk by S awomir Rawicz. The music was composed by Burkhard Dallwitz. Cinematography was done by Russell Boyd and editing by Lee Smith. The movie has a running time of 133 minutes. It was released on 19th November 2010 in English and Russian languages. The Way was made on a budget of $30 million and at the box office it grossed only $13 million. Distribution rights for the motion picture were acquired by Newmarket Films.
