A gigantic white stallion appears mysteriously to a Traveller grandfather and his two grandsons in an Irish slum. Since, puzzlingly, the younger of the two boys is the only individual who can control the horse, ownership falls to him and his older brother by default. There being no place for the animal, they move him into the apartment of their alcoholic Traveller father. Police remove him and, in a shady deal, he ends up under control of a wealthy, underhanded horse breeder. The boys manage to retrieve him and escape on his back, but the stallion seems to have his own travelling agenda.Written by

A Delightful Surprise
I stumbled upon this excellent movie while waiting for another program to begin. I was so enthralled with the characters, plot and the visual feast of the Irish countryside that I quite forgot the other program, and continued to watch until the very lovely, emotionally stirring ending. Since then, I've watched "Into the West" on many occasions and now own the VHS tape. The main characters may be children, and the premise/box blurb would seem to portray a fantasy tale, but let me assure you this is no ordinary piece of kiddie fluff. For centuries the Travellers/Irish Tinkers/Gypsies have been persecuted, rejected, enslaved and murdered by the millions. This movie shows the contempt and disregard of government and society which these beautiful, free-living people have endured for most of recorded history while telling a story which is uplifting and enlightening. Do yourself a favor and watch this movie. You will laugh, you will cry, you will thoroughly enjoy it. It gets a "10" from my family! God Bless the Poor Travellers!!
