If you live in the Washington DC area, I’d love to give you free tickets to see a special advance screening of The Way, Thursday, Oct. 6.  It stars Martin Sheen and was written and directed by his son, Emilio Estavez.  Sheen plays  an American doctor who comes to St. Jean Pied de Port, France to collect the remains of his adult son (played in flashbacks by Estevez), who was killed in the Pyrenees in a storm while walking the Camino de Santiago, also known as The Way of Saint James.  The doctor decides to complete his son’s journey and take the historical pilgrimage himself. What Tom doesn’t plan on is the profound impact the walk will have on him.

NOTE: A TICKET DOES NOT GUARANTEE A SEAT.  PLEASE BE SURE TO GET TO THE THEATER EARLY.  SEATING IS FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED.

I have just twenty passes to give away (each admits two), so respond right away by clicking this movie pass link and entering RSVP code: BLFWJZ3
