The latest film from legendary filmmaker Ken Loach and screenwriter Paul Lavery, ANGEL’S SHARE is a bittersweet comedy about a young man from Glasgow with a criminal past who wants a way out. Following a court appearance during which he’s sentenced to community service, Robbie sneaks into the hospital to visit his girlfriend Leonie and their newborn son and is subsequently overwhelmed. He swears that Luke will not lead the same life has had led.
While on community service Robbie meets Rhino, Albert and Mo all similarly cast out from society and hard up to make ends meet. Little did Robbie imagine how a drink could change their lives – not cheap booze, but the finest malt whiskies. His newly discovered palate and delicate nose lead Robbie and his crew to a strange new world – the Scottish Highlands – and the biggest gamble of their lives. THE ANGEL’S SHARE, winner of the Grand Jury Prize in Cannes, is a heart-warming comedy about redemption from the master of social realist cinema, about city outsiders in search of a better life.
