Ireland, 1920. Damien O'Donovan is leaving for London for an internship, until the dreaded Black and Tans attack his hurling mates, killing one for not speaking English. Thus sidetracked by the Irish War for Independence, Damien is convinced by his brother Teddy to throw his lot in with the IRA. Damien is a purist, an idealist, and therefore marked for a tragic destiny, while Teddy is a fatefully pragmatic politician. These differences between the brothers propel the film through its terrible final act, as the signing of Anglo-Irish Treaty establishes the Irish Free State, splits the Republican movement, and unleashes the Irish Civil War

Naïve, driven Liam comes to the attention of a local crime lord, who offers him employment--but with conditions that are merciless.

Das Leben hat es bislang nicht gut gemeint mit Robbie: Aufgewachsen in schwierigen Verhältnissen ist der junge Schotte schon wiederholt mit dem Gesetz in Konflikt geraten und auch diesmal schrammt er nur um Haaresbreite an einer Gefängnisstrafe vorbei. Zusammen mit anderen jugendlichen Delinquenten wird er zu gemeinnütziger Arbeit verdonnert. Der für sie zuständige Sozialarbeiter Harry hat ein großes Herz und schafft es, eine Verbindung zu den Jugendlichen herzustellen. Als er sie mitnimmt, um eine Whisky-Distillerie zu besuchen, kommt Robbies großes Talent für das "Wasser des Lebens" zu Tage. Der Junge ist ein Naturtalent: Spielend leicht erschließt er sich die Feinheiten des Herstellungsprozesses und die unterschiedlichen Geschmacksnuancen. Aus Liebe zu seiner schwangeren Freundin will Robbie die Chance nutzen, sein Leben endgültig zum Besseren zu wenden. Als die Jugendlichen erfahren, dass ein Fass des teuersten Whiskys der Welt zur Versteigerung kommen soll, beschließen sie, ein paar Flaschen davon für ihre eigenen Zwecke abzuzweigen. Ocean's Elven auf Schottisch: Mit Angel's Share legt Regie-Altmeister Ken Loach eine vielschichtige Milieustudie mit komödiantischen Anstrich in der Tradition von Riff-Raff oder Raining Stones vor. Erneut setzt der Brite dabei auf die Authentizität seiner Laiendarsteller, mit denen er für seine Verhältnisse eine ungewohnt leichtfüßig in Szene gesetzte Geschichte erzählt, die sich nach einem recht drastischen Einstieg sogar noch zu einer Art Heist-Movie wandelt. Mit dem Engelsanteil oder auch Schluck für die Engel ist der Anteil des Whiskys gemeint, der im Laufe seiner Lagerung aus dem Fass verdunstet. Und einen Schluck für die Engel gönnt sich auch Loach, der die sozialkritische Gaunerkomödie im Vergleich zu früheren Filmen deutlich milder enden und seine Charaktere letztlich sogar hoffnungsvoll in die Zukunft blicken lässt. Angel's Share wurde bei den Filmfestspielen von Cannes 2012 mit dem Preis der Jury ausgezeichnet. -- Ellen Große
