NEW YORK, NY (July 14, 2012) – The National Council of La Raza announced July 9 that THE WAY – the powerful and inspirational story from writer/director Emilio Estevez – has earned three nominations for 2012 American Latino Media Arts (ALMA) Awards®. The film is nominated in the Favorite Movie category, and star Martin Sheen is nominated in the Favorite Movie Actor category. Estevez, who co-starred, is nominated in the Favorite Movie Actor – Supporting Role category. THE WAY earned more than $4.4 million during its theatrical run, and is now available on Blu-ray and DVD.
Fans decide the winners through online voting that is open now through Sept. 7 at http://almaawards2012.com/. Fans may vote once daily in a variety of film, TV and music categories. NBC will air the 2012 ALMA Awards® at 8 p.m. ET/ 7 p.m. CT Sept. 21.
In THE WAY, Tom (Sheen) is an irascible American doctor who comes to France to deal with the tragic loss of his son (Estevez). Rather than returning home, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage, “The Way of St. James,” to honor his son’s desire to finish the journey. What Tom doesn’t plan on is the profound impact this trip will have on him. Through unexpected and oftentimes amusing experiences along “The Way,” Tom discovers the difference between “the life we live and the life we choose.”
Blu-ray/DVD bonus features include commentary by Sheen, Estevez and producer David Alexanian; Camino Americana: Taking The Way On The Road; Pilgrimage: Behind The Camera; Father & Son: Uncovering The Characters; and Along the Way: The Journey of a Father and Son – a dual memoir by Martin Sheen and Emilio Estevez.
