Cowboys and Angels, a 2000 film directed by Gregory C. Haynes, tells the story of Sean, a young man from Ireland, who moves to Dublin to attend college where he meets a charismatic female hairdresser named Vivian, her best friend J.P., as well as a fashion model, Carmen. Sean is a straight-laced, more reserved individual who has never fully explored his sexuality, while Vivian and J.P. are outgoing and love to party. As a result, Sean becomes quickly enamoured with their carefree way of living but also struggles with fitting in and being true to himself.

Sean and Vivian form an unlikely bond and she helps him navigate college life, introducing him to new people and experiences. Vivian's influence encourages Sean to let loose and experiment, leading him to meet a man named Dylan whom he is attracted to. The attraction is mutual, and they start seeing each other.

At the same time, Sean is introduced to a world of drugs and partying, which eventually causes him to lose sight of his studies, jeopardizing his future. Despite the warnings from his friends, Sean continues to prioritize his social life over his studies, primarily due to his desire to be around Dylan. He also starts to hang out with a dangerous and wild friend of Vivian's named Charlotte, who has a history of getting into trouble.

Sean soon learns that Dylan has a secret past and a lot of emotional baggage. While Sean is in love with Dylan, he realizes that he cannot continue to neglect his school work and future just to be with him. He makes the tough decision to break up with Dylan; the two remain friends.

Meanwhile, Vivian's relationship with J.P. starts to crumble, causing her to spiral out of control. She becomes more reckless and erratic, and Sean tries to keep her grounded. Eventually, Vivian seeks help and starts to get her life back on track.

In the midst of all this, Sean struggles with his sexuality and identity. He confides in Carmen about how much he's changed since meeting Vivian and J.P., and how he wants to connect with his true self. In the end, Sean makes peace with himself, reunites with his estranged father, and decides to pursue a romantic relationship with Carmen.

Cowboys and Angels is ultimately a film about self-discovery, friendship, and taking control of one's life. The movie explores the question of what happens when we give in to our desires and let go of our inhibitions. Adam Trese, Mia Kirshner, and Radha Mitchell deliver notable performances, and the film's soundtrack is a mix of both popular and lesser-known Irish bands.
