Description

In this remarkable dual memoir, film legend Martin Sheen and accomplished actor/filmmaker Emilio Estevez recount their lives as father and son. In alternating chapters - and in voices that are as eloquent as they are different - they narrate stories spanning more than 50 years of family history, and reflect on their journeys into two different kinds of faith.

After Martin and Emilio traveled together to India for the movie Gandhi, each felt the beginnings of a spiritual awakening that soon led Martin back to his Catholic roots, and eventually led both men to Spain, from where Martin's father had emigrated to the United States.

Along the famed Camino de Santiago pilgrimage path, Emilio directed Martin in their acclaimed film, The Way, bringing three generations of Estevez men together in the region of Spain where Martin's father was born, and near where Emilio's own son had moved to marry and live.

Strikingly candid, searchingly honest, and full of the immedia...
