Pete and Jerry are cousins living in Sydney's western suburbs, where they both fall in love with the same girl. West explores the desperation of realising just how few choices you actually have in life.
Matt Ravier of In Film Australia gave a negative review of the film, noting "[t]he wrong-side-of-the-tracks film is an indie staple stateside. This Australian variant doesn’t succeed in updating the well-worn genre and seems happy to simply recycle the classic coming-of-age elements of more successful productions." Margaret Pomeranz of ABC's At the Movies provided a more favourable reception concluding that it "may not be an easy film for audiences but for me it was a tremendously moving and rewarding experience."
West grossed $57,472 at the box office in Australia.
