The Angels' Share

Four Friends. One Mission. Lots of Spirit. Enjoy Responsibly.


The Angels' Share
A movie along the same lines as Trainspotting, tweaked for the current generation. We follow a young man as he sneaks into the maternity hospital to visit his girlfriend and hold his newborn son for the first time. Overwhelmed by the moment, he swears that his son 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: community service. While doing this he makes three friends who, like him, find it impossible to find work because of their criminal records. Little did they imagine how turning to drink might change their lives. Once they enter the world of whiskey, their lives change in the most remarkable way.
