Four juniors, Dave, Amy and Chris had their problems in live. Together with counseller Ronan they walk the Camino de Santiago.
Limelight: The Unlikely Pilgrims is a triumphant tale about what can be accomplished if one has the courage to confront one’s own physical, spiritual and emotional limits.
"The Camino de Santiago is a centuries-old 800-kilometre pilgrim trail through northern Spain, attracting thousands of tourists annually. The pilgrims in this revelatory documentary – nine years in the making - are not, however, your usual hikers. Amy, Chris and Dave are recovering addicts. Ronan O’Connor, a drug and alcohol counsellor at an Australian rehabilitation centre, has agreed to be their guide, but not their therapist. He’s well aware that the trek will be a challenge for the trio, but is convinced that in order to move on, they need to take charge in the long haul through life and down the track."
The movie Pilgrimage by Brendan Muldowney was expected for some time now.
"Starring Tom Holland, Richard Armitage and Jon Bernthal.
Ireland, 1209. An island on the edge of the world. A small group of monks begin a reluctant pilgrimage across an island torn between centuries of tribal warfare and the growing power of Norman invaders. Escorting their monastery’s holiest relic to Rome, the monks’ progress is seen through the eyes of a pious young novice and a mute lay-brother with a violent past. As the true material, political and religious significance of the bejewelled relic becomes dangerously apparent, their path to the east coast becomes increasingly fraught with danger. The monks belatedly realise that in this wild land of ancient superstitions, the faith that binds them together may ultimately lead to their destruction."
