The Angels' Share
UK/ France/ Belgium/ Italy 2012, 101 min, Digital, Dir: Ken Loach

Winner of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize.

Opting for community service over jail time after he is charged for an assault, the rough-hewn Robbie (Paul Brannigan) befriends three fellow layabouts and petty crooks. After meeting an expert in Scotch whisky, Robbie recruits his chums for a wild scheme to plunder a few bottles of extremely rare Malt Mill whisky and thereby make his fortune - after all, as two percent of every barrel of whisky evaporates over the course of a year (the so-called “angels’ share”), Robbie and his mates reason that it could be put to better use down on earth. Working wonders with a cast of non-professionals and making picturesque use of the lush, rolling Scottish Highlands, Ken Loach and screenwriter Paul Laverty brilliantly transform grubby realism into sprightly fable.
