Critic Reviews of "The Angels' Share"Orange County RegisterMarch 03, 2014
Modest in scale, expansive in emotions, this movie is a rarity: a contemporary tragicomedy.Washington PostJanuary 01, 2014
Despite its ultimate sense of optimism, the Glasgow-set dramedy nevertheless carries a sense of foreboding. And yet, that might not have been the intention.Globe and MailMay 17, 2013
The result is a sometimes gritty, occasionally charming Highland hybrid, but the final balance feels slightly off-kilter.Toronto StarMay 16, 2013
Loach takes us through the mysteries of whisky making, exploring the subtle tastes and scents in ways that will have audiences wishing they had a dram at hand. But a glass also serves more symbolic purposes ...Minneapolis Star TribuneMay 09, 2013
If you want to look for it, you'll find a layer of metaphor (the distilling process as a symbol of the characters' evolution) and social-realist commentary amid the gentle, life-affirming laughs.Chicago ReaderMay 03, 2013
[Ken Loach] and his longtime screenwriter, Paul Laverty, find a good balance between drama and wacky character moments.Philadelphia WeeklyApril 28, 2015
Probably the first Ken Loach film you could call 'jaunty.'Eye for FilmJanuary 01, 2014
The film is cocktail of comedy and heist with a large shot of social realism.NOW TorontoJanuary 01, 2014
Slipping back and forth between drama and comedy, The Angels' Share initially seems shaggy and unstructured, but that's part of its appeal.Canada.comJanuary 01, 2014
Mingling the peaty scent of Scottish street life with a distilled take on unemployed, at-risk youth, director Ken Loach serves up a surprisingly upbeat cocktail thanks to a subplot involving rare whisky.Film Comment MagazineNovember 04, 2013
With this shaggy-dog tale of four petty Glaswegian criminals and their improbably successful scheme to steal the world's most valuable whiskey, Loach turns naïveté into a sort of moral philosophy.Arkansas Democrat-GazetteAugust 17, 2013
...a low key and rather marvelous, sweet-natured heist movie
