Veteran English director Ken Loach’s old-fashioned caper-comedy, set in Scotland, is about a scheming youngster determined to break into a distillery and make off with some extremely pricey malt whiskey. Robbie has been given a sentence of community service for some petty criminal activity and comes under the tutelage of good-hearted supervisor Harry. When Harry, a fancier of fine whiskey, decides to do a field trip to the distillery Robbie displays a surprisingly discerning nose for the good stuff. That’s where he discovers that distilleries make allowances for evaporation—the “angels’ share”—and decides to skim a little off the top of a premium cask to sell to unscrupulous buyers. In Glaswegian with no subtitles.

Winner of Jury Prize at Cannes Film Festival 2012.
