    A beautiful movie, Into the West features brilliant performances from an amazing cast and is so well crafted by the production team also. I saw it originally growing up as a young child and missed the complex sub-plots and themes it addresses such as poverty, addiction and the plight of minorities in a deeply conservative society. Well worth the re-watch even if you've seen it before.

    Too long, predictable and boring. Yawn!

    A realistic magical shows in "Into The West", while it's a bit confusing if it's watched by younger viewers, but the horse's visualization is always magnificent. It reminds me to "The Black Stallion"

    A beautiful film from Ireland's budding film industry.

    A family of members of the Irish travelling community tries to get back their beloved stallion Tir na nÓg after he was illegally sold off of them by the cops. Though the film can come across as an interesting commercialised portrait of the Irish travelling community and the magic of Irish legend storytelling, in reality it has an underwhelming plot and many cheesy moments that seem to row against the initial premise and any expectations the film may have carried.

    Set in Ireland of the late 20th century, this fairy tale deals with travelers who are struggling with the changing times with the particular example of one family who is dealing with the death of the mother and the appearance of a horse. If you are into horses and/or Ireland you should watch this movie -- and even if you are not, you should give this one a shot. After all, it does have Byrne in it.

    This is a great movie with multi-faceted layers. For those who have complained that they're not up on their Irish folklore and aren't sure what's going on, I'm surprised. The old grandfather explains the story of Tir Na nOg in the beginning of the movie.
