In Jim McGlynn's original (Nicoll Fellowship-winning) screenplay, Pat died in Bokky's arms while convincing him, in his broken gypsy dialect, not to leave the traveller family. The ending was re-written on-location at the behest of Bill Paxton and Jack Green. See more »

This was totally interesting to watch, but it needed two things: (1) to be based in some kind of reality; (2) to have a conclusion for the characters. In the picture, you see Marky Mark getting into a romance with the daughter of the capo di capos, but absolutely nothing comes of it. And what happens to Bill Paxton's girlfriend. And even the scheme for the counterfeit bills, which should have been crystal clear, did not hold together.
And who are these people? I get the feeling that the filmmakers were trying not to call them gypsies or roma--fear of offending an ethnic group. Rather, they seemed to be some combination of Irish and Italian. But the movie would make more sense if it were clearly grounded in a real group of people.
But, that said, I still enjoyed every minute of it. It just ended too soon.
