Narrowly avoiding jail, new dad Robbie vows to turn over a new leaf. A visit to a whisky distillery inspires him and his mates to seek a way out of their hopeless lives. “The Angel’s Share” is a fine whisky of a film directed by award-winning director Ken Loach.
The title, “The Angel’s Share”, comes from the phrase used to describe the whisky that evaporates while it is being aged in wooden barrels. “The Angel’s Share” is a funny and moving drama, with a strong ‘heist-film” vibe.
This fantastic film has won eight awards, including the Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize in 2012, where it was also nominated for the Palme d’Or. Actor Paul Brannigan, who made his debut in this film, was much acclaimed for his performance as Robbie, winning a BAFTA.
If you’re a lover of fine drama and fine drink, pour yourself a dram and settle down with “The Angel’s Share”.
