Actors Sheen, Estevez Screen Movie 'The Way'
The Department of Spanish & Portuguese was honored to help sponsor a special screening of "The Way" with Charlie Sheen and Emilio Estevez on February 18, 2011.
As a practicing Catholic, veteran actor Martin Sheen and star of the new movie The Way told a Georgetown audience Feb. 18 that he's always been curious about religious pilgrimages.
Sheen and his son, The Way writer/director Emilio Estevez, were on campus for a special screening of the movie about the journey of a man (played by Sheen) making a pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago or Way of St. James.
In the film, his son (played by Estevez) dies on the historic trail.
The pilgrimage's historic route is filmed from Saint-Jean-Pied-de-Port, France, to Santiago de Compostela, Spain. Sheen (whose real last name is Estevez) calls the film "a love letter to Spain," because his father emigrated from an area near Santiago to the U.S.
