Movie Review – The Angel’s Share

My second film of the NZIFF, and third film of the day, was ‘The Angel’s Share’, and it was one I knew very little about. In fact, all I knew about it was the picture that advertised it, which was of the four main characters wearing kilts. For some reason I just knew it was going to be funny, and picking a film squarely based off that can often lead to a great time at the cinema!

“Narrowly avoiding jail, new dad Robbie vows to turn over a new leaf. A visit to a whisky distillery inspires him and his mates to seek a way out of their hopeless lives.”

'The Angel's Share' was the feel good film I was so in the mood for! Think 'Oceans 11' meets 'Trainspotting'! Ok, maybe that's not a good mix of films to compare it to, but it was a Scottish film about a Whisky heist, and it's way better and funnier than that sounds. But be prepared to only understand them half the time, as those accents be thick! 
A+ From Me!!!
