Into the West 1992
The film is half fantasy with elements of ancient Irish legend (the white horse from Tir na n'Og, the Land of Eternal Youth), half gritty realism with the two young boys, neglected by their widowed and depressed alcoholic father (Gabriel Byrne). When their grandfather (the late and great David Kelly) finds a mysterious magical white horse, he gives it to the boys, the younger of whom immediately bonds with it. Having nowhere else to keep the animal, they bring it into their tower block apartment. When the horse is taken from them by the authorities, they set off to find it. And once they do, it brings them on a perilous journey westward across all of Ireland to the ocean, where, beyond the white surf, there is Tir na n'Og, that place where you can find the souls of the dead, and where the young boy Ossie longs to meet his long dead mother whom he never knew.
