THE WAY (Theatrical Release USA 2010)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.9|5.0 Stars ìììì

The Way
—turns into a surprisingly inspirational and breathtaking film. It’s about heart breaking loss, broadening perspectives, increasing understanding, love, heart, and healing. Kudos to Director Emilio Estevez for making a film from which everyone can gather insight. Emilio Estevez successfully accomplishes what few films are able to accomplish—universally appeal to human hearts with gentleness.
