Ken Loach’s ‘The Angels’ Share’ Trailer Flashes Its Meat and Two Veg and Pours a Stiff One

Whiskey is effectively Super Beer. It’s made of the same stuff – fermented grains like rye and barley, but there are no hops and it’s made in a much longer process. That process includes sticking that sweet substance into a wooden barrel long enough for it to at least get a driver’s license, but no matter what, something around 2% of the whiskey evaporates over that time. That missing 2% is the angel’s share. As it turns out, the Heavenly Host likes a good sniff once in a while too.

A trailer for The Angels’ Share – the new film from the iconic Ken Loach – shows a delightful comedic story like English dramedies that have been big over the past two decades (only this one’s from Scotland). The Full Monty connection seems clear, but it’s got a lot going for it. Loach? Whiskey? Hell of a good recipe for movie-making.
