"The Way" (2010) - A Camino de Santiago Pilgrimage

All the S**t I've Learned Abroad

08-02-2021 • 47 mins

With plans to embark on their own Camino pilgrimage in 2024, Steph and Andrea review The Way (2010) and how it resonates with them, the parallels it draws to real-life travel adventures and the overarching theme of how travel fundamentally changes us.

In The Way, when Daniel Avery (played by Emilio Estevez) dies on pilgrimage of the Camino de Santiago, his father, Dr. Tom Avery (played by Martin Sheen) flies to France to claim the remains. Despite having been estranged, Tom decides to complete the 825-kilometre trek to Spain to honour his son, spreading his ashes along the way.

The Way (2010) is available on Amazon, Netflix and SBS (country dependent) and is available for rent/purchase on the Apple TV app.
