The Angels' Share
Starring: Paul Brannigan, John Henshaw, Gary Maitland, Jasmin Riggins, William Ruane, Roger Allam, Siobhan Reilly
Directed by: Ken Loach
The plot: Community service reprobate Robbie and fellow attendees Albert, Rhino and Mo hatch a hare-brained plan to steal four bottles of the most expensive whisky in the world, rumoured to be worth 1 million at auction. The wastrels already have an eager buyer lined up, who will pay handsomely for the intoxicating nectar. All Robbie and his pals have to do is keep their illegal plan secret from their community service supervisor and avoid detection at the highland distillery, where the whisky is under 24 hour guard.

what the others say
"Like good whisky, Loach is mellowing and becoming subtler with age - though a swift chug still has a bit of a kick."
"Loach and Laverty never fully resolve the yin and yang: the blood and the banter. But it's still rewarding to see these filmmakers exploring a different ton."
"This is British comedy at its warmest and most pleasurable; cask strength, unfiltered and neat."
