Beach Flicks presents an inspirational film starring the father-son team Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez tonight Nov. 16 at the Eaglecrest Golf Club.
In The Way, Martin Sheen plays Tom, an irascible American doctor who comes to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to collect the remains of his adult son (played by Emilio Estevez), killed in the Pyrenees in a storm while walking The Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way of Saint James. Rather than return home, Tom decides embark on the historical pilgrimage to honor his son’s desire to finish the journey.
What Tom doesn’t plan on, is the profound impact the journey will have on him and his “California Bubble Life”. Inexperienced as a trekker, Tom soon discovers that he will not be alone on this journey.
Doors open at 5:30 p.m. and the film begins at 7 p.m. sharp. Tickets are $6 with profits going to charity.
