In "The Way," Martin Sheen gives an effective performance as a man who gains more than he expected during a religious pilgrimage. Sheen plays Tom, an eye doctor and widower who early in the film learns his son Daniel has died. (Sheen's real-life son, Emilio Estevez, plays Daniel; he also directed the film and wrote the screenplay.) The fatal accident occurred as Daniel was embarking on the Camino de Santiago, or the Way of St. James, a religious walk spanning hundreds of miles in Europe. After he has collected his son's ashes, Tom decides to complete the journey his son had started, taking Daniel's ashes along.
