The Angel's Share (2012)

Directed by: Ken Loach
Country: UK

Plot: Narrowly avoiding jail, new dad Robbie vows to turn over a new leaf.
Review: The name of Ken Loach brings a lot of good movies to my memory. The rawness and realism are his main traits, not forgetting the humor and independent approach. No need to tell that the formula worked fine once again, even if the plot doesn't show the realism or steady consistency seen in other works. “The Angel’s Share” makes another shot on comedy with an unlikely yet original plot. After the disappointment that was “Looking For Eric”, released three years ago, Loach with the help of his regular screenwriter Paul Laverty, definitely assumes to have a knack for funny situations.
Relevant awards: Jury prize (Cannes).
