‘The Way‘ movie opens in cinemas across the UK on May 13.
It features Martin Sheen, who plays Tom, an American doctor who comes to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to collect the remains of his adult son, killed in the Pyrenees in a storm while walking The Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way of Saint James.
Driven by his profound sadness and desire to understand his son better, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage, leaving his “California bubble life” behind.
Armed with his son’s backpack and guidebook, Tom navigates the 800km historical pilgrimage from the French Pyrenees, to Santiago de Compostela in the north west of Spain, but soon discovers that he will not be alone on this journey.
Premier Christian Radio are the official Faith Media Partners for the movie (they previously teamed up with Icon Film Distribution for the ‘Passion of the Christ’ back in 2004). They have a treat for the many fans of Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez who were in the UK to promote the film earlier this year. Premier got some exclusive time with them to talk about the making of the movie and you can now see their interview with them on their website. There you will also have access to free church resources around the film, view the official movie trailer and view the comments of Premier listeners who have already seen preview screenings of ‘The Way’.
Additionally, they have a competition to win a trip to beautiful northern Spain where the film was shot.
