  • A heartfelt project, scrappy and engaging, The Way has its way with audiences despite, not because of, its sentimental excess. show more

  • It's a sweet and sincere family pilgrimage, even if a little too long and obvious. Audiences seeking uplift will find it here. show more

  • Estevez keeps his touch light, with a minimum of pedantry. The Way is really a gift from this son to his father. Sheen, gradually revealing a man painfully getting reacquainted with long buried feelings, who gives the film its bruised heart. show more
