Exclusive: Clip From The Angels' Share
Ken Loach's whisky galore

23 May 2012  |  Written by Phil de Semlyen

Swapping waterboarding for the water of life, Ken Loach's latest project, The Angels' Share, is a world away from his taut Iraq war thriller Route Irish. "Hey, even political warriors need to chill y'all," is probably not how Ken would put it.

Landing with us from, we'd like to think, an internet cafe in Cannes, this new clip from Loach's new film does a nice job of establishing the tone of his new comedy-drama. The acting is as naturalistic as you'd expect from a Loach film and nicely-judged, too, while the Scottish setting is a geographical departure to accompany the genre switcheroo.

The scene shows Glaswegian young offender Robbie (Paul Brannigan) and his whisky-loving social worker (John Henshaw) sharing a close encounter with some exceeding fine single malts.



As the trailer shows, it's not without it's serious aspects too. Expect a mingling of gentle humour and spiky social comment when The Angels' Share reaches cinemas on June 1.
