Into the West

Mike Newell (Mona Lisa Smile, Four Weddings and Funeral) directed this 1992 comedy drama about two kids in Dublin (Ruaidhri Conroy and Ciaran Fitzgerald) who steal a white pony and ride through Ireland on it. This tries hard—too hard, in fact—to be a lighthearted fantasy, though at least it compensates with some pretty scenery. Gabriel Byrne plays the boys' father, and Ellen Barkin—accorded second billing, but around for barely more than a cameo—is a Gypsy he meets on his search for the boys. The script is by Jim Sheridan (In America, My Left Foot); with David Kelly. PG, 97 min.
