Irish Movie Review - "Into The West"

"Into The West" was released in 1993 starring Gabriel Byrne and Ellen Barkin. The movie was set in a gritty section of Dublin prior to the economic boom that has improved the conditions in Ireland dramatically. A story of a Traveller's family who discover a magical white horse. It's a gritty story of a dad that has turned into an alcoholic after the loss of his wife and his two sons mother. The two son's are just great together.

It's a movie I would have loved to worked on or made. It's a delightful adventure.

If you haven't saw it I highly recommend it. It's a great family film with an uplifting ending and a tale of redemption with a little touch of the magic that is Ireland.
