Product description

Product Description

From award-winning director Ken Loach and writer Paul Laverty comes a bitter sweet comedy caper which proves that sometimes all you need in life is a little spirit. Escaping a prison sentence by the skin of his teeth, the wayward and disillusioned Robbie is given one last chance to turn his life around. Together the four friends he embarks on an adventure and discovers that turning to drink might just change their lives - not cheap fortified wine, but the best malt whiskies in the world.

Special Features:

  • Deleted scenes
  • Making of: Distilling The Angels' Share

From Amazon.co.uk

2012 boasted a collection of British films of real quality. Ken Loach's The Angel's Share was most certainly one of those. Considering Loach has a reputation for bleak, brilliant dramas, some might be surprised to see the light comic touch he's applied to this winning mix of comedy and drama. That said, it still has a fair amount to say.

The Angel's Share initially starts on a sombre note, as it's not long before we meet the main characters in a courtroom. Here, they're being sentenced for a series of offences, and young father Robbie is only saved from prison by the fact that his girlfriend is shortly to give birth.

But from these foundations comes a triumph of a film, as community service brings whiskey into Robbie's life. The Angel's Share also certainly makes a few points as it tells its story, and there's a political subtext here. Yet Loach injects warmth and humour into the film, and his young, inexperienced cast prove really rather special, too. Tonally, The Angel's Share shifts around a little, and it does have a change of direction that's likely to be divisive. Yet it's a smart, enjoyable film.

The disc includes a featurette that digs into the making of the feature, and it also includes some interesting deleted material, too. There's certainly enough there to make the film and DVD both warmly recommended. A drop of whiskey to accompany it wouldn't hurt, either. --Jon Foster
