The Angels' Share
Winner of the 2012 Cannes Film Festival Jury Prize, "The Angels' Share" is a comic fable about wasted talent and what happens when we are given a chance in life. It would be hard to see Robbie as a man worthy of redemption. He’s watching out for thugs looking to settle a family grudge, his girlfriend is giving birth to a baby while her father offers him money to leave, and he’s serving 300 hours of community service. But when Robbie meets Harry, the benevolent man in charge of his sentence, he finds a hidden talent for whiskey—and a new chance at life. For distillers, the angels’ share is the whiskey lost to evaporation each year, and that little fact makes a rare cask of whiskey the perfect target for a heist. A hilarious story about second chances, THE ANGELS’ SHARE is a crowd-pleaser from filmmaker Ken Loach ("The Wind that Shakes the Barely", "Kes") and screenwriter Paul Laverty.
