The Angels’ Share is set for release next Friday 1st June and to mark the occasion, Entertainment One have given us this brand new clip from the movie which sets the scene nicely and informs us where the movie has gotten it’s title from. The film has a great cast which includes Roger Allam, John Henshaw, Daniel Portman, William Ruane, Lorne MacFadyen, David Goodall while being helmed by fabulous director Ken Loach.
The synopsis is below and the clip can be seen by scrolling down the page.
This bitter sweet comedy 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.
Please note, this clip contains swearing.
