Charming movie - ironic because country music is now big in UK
This was such a great 90's film that featured country music. Only now in 2014 has the youth of Britain really got into country music. So this was ahead of its time (yes, I know another review already said that). The story felt so real because it was filmed in typical London suburbs where Indian, Jewish and Irish all live together. It could have been a fly on the wall documentary or reality item because it had that look and feel about it. I wonder why this is not shown on TV ever? Film 4, as far as I am aware, never show it. One issue is that the title "Wild West" has been given to so many film now that it can cause confusion. The excellent music included covers of Nanci Griffith and Steve Earle songs. I really cannot recommend this film highly enough.
