The Angels’ Share trailer reveals first glimpse of Ken Loach’s latest Scottish film

Famed director Ken Loach has returned up north for his new movie The Angels’ Share, which features Scotland’s finest tipple - whisky.

Loach’s latest film is scripted by regular collaborator Paul Laverty, the Scottish screenwriter who has worked on the likes of Sweet Sixteen, Ae Fond Kiss... and The Wind That Shakes the Barley, as well as My Name is Joe and Carla's Song.

The pair were at the Glasgow Film Festival last February to talk about their last collaboration Route Irish, which had a focus on the effects of the war in Iraq.

The Angels’ Share introduces Robbie, an ex-offender and new father who embarks on an adventure with his new found friends to a whisky distillery and discovers that turning to drink might just change his life.

Set in Scotland, and starring newcomer Paul Brannigan, The Angels’ Share has been described as a bitter sweet comedy caper.

The film is released in UK cinemas on June 1.
