Into the West

Posted by on Sunday, April 8th, 2007

Into the West directed by Mike Newell and written by Jim Sheridan

This is the movie about travellers I do recommend.  It’s a kids’ film, in theory, but it’s a well-written, evocative, entertaining film.  Few American kids’ movies will go to the lengths it does, with a drunken widowed father, impoverished, uppity kids, and a grandfather who encourages nomadism over settled life.  The cast is great, the kids in the lead rolls do very well, and the Irish heavyweight actors do what they do.  Watch it.  It will cheer you up.
