Ken Loach’s Cannes award winning comedy that stormed the Melbourne International Film Festival and was voted in the top ten of the audience faves there is heading to Aussie Cinemas in November and here’s a peek at the trailer.
Synopsis: Ken Loach is back with “The Angels’ Share” – a bitter sweet comedy that follows protagonist Robbie as he sneaks into the maternity hospital to visit his young girlfriend Leonie and hold his newborn son Luke for the first time. Overwhelmed by the moment, he swears that Luke will not have the same tragic life he has had. Escaping a prison sentence by the skin of his teeth, he’s given one last chance……While serving a community service order, he meets Rhino, Albert and Mo who, like him, find it impossible to find work because of their criminal records. Little did Robbie imagine how turning to drink might change their lives – not cheap fortified wine, but the best malt whiskies in the world. Will it be ‘slopping out’ for the next twenty years, or a new future with ‘Uisge Beatha’ the ‘Water of Life?’ Only the angels know…….
THE ANGELS’ SHARE releases in AUSTRALIA on NOVEMBER 22, 2012 through VENDETTA FILMS
