New film on famed pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela

Catholic World News - November 03, 2011

In an interview with Catholic World Report, actor Martin Sheen discusses The Way, a new film set on the famed Camino de Santiago (Way of St. James)--the pilgrimage route to Santiago de Compostela.

“The Camino has been there for a thousand years and Hollywood has been there for a hundred years, and it’s had that long to make a picture about [the Camino] and it’s never done it,” says Sheen, who said the movie has “no car chase, no overt sexuality, no foul language.”

“We realized very quickly that we were wasting our time trying to get anybody in Hollywood interested in it.”

Interviewer Matthew Rarey describes The Way as “something beautiful for God: a sensitively crafted, visually stunning, and deeply human work that treats the Church respectfully, appealing to Catholics as well as all men of good will journeying toward the truth.”
