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.
