Shy and awkward, Wild West obsessed Billy Burns’ cheerful cowboy fixation masks the scars of a childhood tragedy. Befriended by local hothead Ciaran and his girlfriend Laura, Billy becomes bruised by his unrequited attraction to her and hurt by her volatile boyfriend. Proudly wearing his love of Cowboy movies, Conaty beautifully captures the bored flinty small talk of rural barflies while deftly balancing moments of sadness with levity, never more so than with an ending that, while downbeat, is in its own unique way, and in that great Western phrase, elegiac.
