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. But again, this is made to get people in theaters so it may not be revealing another level. 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.
The Angels’ Share hits UK theaters on June 1st after a likely Cannes bow. It has picked up no US distribution yet.
