There's a contemplative loveliness to The Way, an affecting personal project both for Emilio Estevez, who wrote, directed, and plays a small role, and for his father, Martin Sheen. Sheen plays a self-absorbed eye doctor who begins to see the world with new eyes as he makes a pilgrimage along the historical Camino de Santiago — the Way of Saint James — across the Pyrenees. As he meets other pilgrims, this humbled doc discovers what it means to be engaged in one's own life. B+
