The Way (2010)

"Filmed on location against the gorgeous landscapes of northern Spain, the spiritual journey of American ophthalmologist Thomas Avery (Martin Sheen) begins as he is called from the comforts of his California home to Saint Jean Pied de Port in France to identify the body of his only son Daniel (Emilio Estevez). Avery elects to walk the Camino on behalf of his son, embarking with Daniel’s ashes which he dutifully portions out along the way." From Brian Maurer's excellent review which appears on his blog.

This fine movie is about grief and growth. Few who watch it will be disappointed. Few will forget it. 2010, 2 hours.
