    The Way 2 - Characters

    I am a self admitted fan of The Way. No apologies for that. We know that Jack, Jost, Tom and presumably Daniel will return. Are there secondary characters that you would like to see in the next film? I'd love to see Ishmael or Henri Sébastien find a place in the plot line. Thoughts? Gord

    The Way: how do you feel about THE movie?

    A recent post about a sequel to the the Way elicited many responses, and a few people thought a poll would be interesting. I agree, wondering what the silent people here think, not merely those of us who feel strongly enough to post their opinions. So what's the current general feeling here on...

    Over 32K pilgrims from the U.S., the second highest after Spain, received compostelas in 2023, per Foundacion Jacobea

    The article below indicates that this represents more than 10-fold increase in the number of U.S residents receiving the Compostela in little more than ten years. It attributes much of this growth to the popularity of the film The Way. Personally, when I did my first walk on the Camino in 2016...

    In-Theater showings of The Way — US, May 2023

    I have gotten a notice that The Way is going to be shown in some theaters across the US during the month of May. Here is one chain that will show it: https://www.marcustheatres.com/movies/the-way-fathom-event It is described as a “fathom event,” and I’m not sure what that means, but I’ll bet...

    Santa María de Figueiras

    After much searching, the location of the church where Jost (or Joost) rang the bell in the film (or movie) "The Way" was found to be the church of Santa María de Figueiras, not on The Way at all, but only 5 km from the cathedral in Santiago. I walked there two days after finishing my camino. I...

    The enduring legacy of the movie ‘The Way’ (and a new book by Jen Hutchison)

    How many Forum members have watched the movie, ‘The Way’ at least once? … More than we’ll ever know. How many Forum members have visited some of the locations featured in the movie? … More than we’ll ever know. And how many Forum members who have met, or know of a pilgrim, inspired by Tom in...

    How to stream the movie "The Way" in the US

    Hello - I see the post regarding "the way" movie are old. I have searched and searched and haven't been able to figure out how to stream the movie. I have found it listed on a couple of providers but the movie is "unavailable" or it directs you to a different movie with the same name. Does...

    While you're not doing anything else ... help locate the pilgrim shelter in The Way

    🙂 While one chapter closes, another chapter opens, perhaps with new actors. @Bert45 is still looking for the location of the shelter where the movie pilgrims spent the night. To get things going, below is a screenshot of this place as shown in the movie, and next to it is a screenshot from...

    Locations used in "The Way"

    JennyH94 asked for some help in finding locations used in the film "The Way", starring Martin Sheen and directed by his son, Emilio Estevez. I put some answers on her post, but I thought it might help her and other "tragics" if I provided a list of all the locations I have been told or found by...

    While you're not doing anything else ... help identify this church!

    If you're not too busy, I'd like to ask you to take a look at the church where Joost rings the bell near the end of the film "The Way". It is the last location I would like to identify, having identified all the others that I want to identify. If you know where it is, please put me out of my...

    Alternate versions of “The Way”

    I just watched a buddy’s copy of THE WAY and was shocked to see two very noticeable differences from my version. His was a Chinese DVD (maybe pirated) with Spanish titling while mine was simply the generic US version. The biggest difference was the reappearance of Daniel at the very end...

    Disparaging "The Way"

    I’m biased. I loved it despite it’s faults. And it really annoys me when people dismiss it with the throw-away line “Hollywood Movie” with every derogatory implication that goes with it. Just today I read that the modern popularity of the Camino derives from "Coelho, MacLain, Hollywood". I take...

    Camino Pilgrim Statues - Monumento ao Peregrino

    As the 2019 Camino season is starting to get busier I thought I would do this as a bit of awareness in case it helps. As individuals, films affect us in different ways. There was a scene in The Way where they are seen walking through a field to the pilgrim statues just outside Santiago. I...

    My "The Way "- the movie story!

    I have been itching to tell this story so here it is! In April, 2015 I was approaching Leon on the Camino Francis for the 3rd time. As it turned out, I was with my brother in law but he was a day behind me, so I decided to spend an extra day in Leon in order for him to catch up. I had heard a...

    "The Way": shooting locations map

    Hi all: I've been meaning to post this for a few weeks, but as usual, real life gets in the way... Anyway: there have been in this forum a few threads listing the places where "The Way" was shot, and I thought that it would be a good idea to compile the information in them in a single place...

    "The Way"

    Hello All, I was watching "The Way" for the umpteenth time the other night. I've honestly lost track of how many times I've watched this lovely film. A thought came to me regarding the characters- their individual stories, both before and after they walked along The Way.I was going to start...

    Martin Sheen needs a GPS!

    Watching Martin Sheen in the film "The Way" he has a night in Roncesvalles and then moves on to within a few kilometres of Pamplona where he gives up on his fat friend who continues on to Pamplona on his own. He overnights and sets of the following morning, phoning home on his mobile to tell his...
