The Angels' Share

"Opting for community service over jail time after he is charged for an assault, the rough-hewn Robbie (Paul Brannigan) befriends three fellow layabouts and petty crooks. After meeting an expert in Scotch whisky, Robbie recruits his chums for a wild scheme to plunder a few bottles of extremely rare Malt Mill whisky and thereby make his fortune - after all, as two percent of every barrel of whisky evaporates over the course of a year (the so-called “angels’ share”), Robbie and his mates reason that it could be put to better use down on earth. Working wonders with a cast of non-professionals and making picturesque use of the lush, rolling Scottish Highlands, Ken Loach and screenwriter Paul Laverty brilliantly transform grubby realism into sprightly fable. (TIFF)" (taken from the Metro's website below)

Sounds angelic, right? Quite heavenly. Let's go see it!

The film is at 7pm. Let's meet around 6:45pm in the main lobby of the Garneau/Metro theatre. I'll be near the couches, and I'll have a small bouquet of artificial flowers, which will help you to spot me.

We can always head to a nearby cafe afterwards to chat about the film. Not sure if any of the places also serve whiskey, but you can ask.

      Yeah, I think that all of us had moments when we couldn't understand the strong Glasgow accents.

    Maria, my plans for the evening are looking tenuous due to a sudden work commitment. Hopefully I can still be there.

      Thanks for letting me know, Greg. No worries if you can't make it, but awesome if you can.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
