The Angels’ Share by Ken Loach is a fantastic comedy. Read Isabel del Rio review.

Yesterday, I saw this film (2012) by Ken Loach.

If we speak about Ken Loach, we are speaking about the best cinema. More than twenty years ago, I saw Hidden Agenda and I was impressed by its plot and direction. From then on, I’ve been following Ken Loach’s career and he has never disappointed me. I would like to mention Land and Liberty or Raining Stones too.

However, all of these films were dramas, politically committed and with tragic ends. Then, I don’t expect to see a so good comedy like The Angel’s Share.

The Angel’s Share tells the story of a group of young delinquents. They hadn’t committed great crimes. Their bigger sin was to grow up in bad families and worst neighborhoods, in Glasgow. Robbie (Paul Brannigan) is even intelligent and only needs a chance to overcome his past. Now, he is desperately looking for this chance because he just had a baby.

He knew Harry (John Henshaw), his tutor while serving a community service order, and other friendly companions of service: Rhino (William Ruane), Albert (Gary Maitland) and Mo (Jasmin Riggings). Harry has a hobby, he is a great taster of whiskey and Robbie starts to learn this art. He is good, has a good nose but nobody gives a job to a delinquent.

Scotland is a land full of big drinkers. Some are drunkards and star absolutely funny situations; some are elegant tasters or clients; but some others are rich collectors… Then, Robbie imagines how turning to drink might change their lives… Hilarious plan and tender end. Fantastic film very different to other movies by Ken Loach.

If you have the chance, see Angels’ Share, because whiskey shares its aroma with the Angels when you are in Glasgow!

Have a nice day!

Lord's Pavilion

As the cricket season draws to a close, Marylebone Cricket Club (MCC) can report a surge in popularity for guests seeking a full day of luxury hospitality at Lord’s during a Test Match in 2016. In the Home of Cricket’s most iconic venues – the Captains’ Lounge and Marylebone Suite – hospitality packages which included a hearty breakfast, sumptuous four-course lunch and luxury afternoon tea, sold out quickly for the first three days of the England v Sri Lanka and England v Pakistan Investec Test Matches. Private Boxes with the best views of the action for up to 18 guests also sold out fast for the same days. MCC revealed a sharp increase in revenue for its 2016 Sri Lanka Test Match hospitality packages compared with 2014 when the team last played England at Lord’s. Revenues for hospitality were up by nearly 30% over the same period in 2014 whilst private box sale revenues were up by a healthy 60%. Nick Kenton, MCC Head of Sales, Meetings & Events and Hospitality, said: “2016 has been a fantastic year for enjoying a day of cricket whilst experiencing the very best food, drink and hospitality that Lord’s has to offer. “This year’s sales figures show that hospitality packages at Lord’s were in huge demand and continue to be a key part of the summer sporting calendar.” Lord’s also expects high demand for its new hospitality packages, to be released this autumn for 2017 matches. These include England v South Africa from 6th to 10th July and England v West Indies from 7th to 11th September. Packages for the England v Ireland Royal London One-Day International on 7th May 2017 are also expected to sell out in record time. Details of all hospitality options at Lord’s can be found on its website
