After winning the Palm d’Or at Cannes just a few years ago for the excellent drama The Wind That Shakes the Barley, director Ken Loach (Kes) is likely set to return with a new film, The Angels’ Share. Co-written by Paul Laverty, the film follows Robbie (Paul Brannigan), a trouble-maker and new parent who finds new meaning in life after traveling to a whisky distillery.
We’ve got a new trailer below, which makes it seem like more of a fun effort from Loach and not necessarily the hard-hitting drama we’ve seen from him.

In other Loach, news he also in production on a documentary called Spirit of ’45, which takes a look at the social and political landscape of the United Kingdom following WWII. So look for that one soon, with more details on Variety, and see the trailer by clicking below via The Guardian.
