Competition: Win tickets for ‘The Angels’ Share’ *closed*

We’ve teamed up with the lovely chaps at Entertainment One to offer our British cinema-loving readers THREE pair of tickets to the UK Premiere of Ken Loach’s The Angels’ Share (2012) (review here) at Glasgow’s Cineworld Renfrew Street on Tuesday 29 May. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue.

Frantically trying to put his violent past behind him is Robbie (a heartfelt turn by relative unknown Paul Brannigan), a young Glaswegian wastrel who begins the film by narrowly escaping a prison sentence for aggravated assault. Giving a second chance by a lenient judge, Robbie vows to change his ways not just for himself, but for his long-term girlfriend Leonie (Siobhan Reilly) and their newborn son Luke.

Whilst serving out his punishment of 300 hours community service, Robbie meets a rag-tag, motley crew of past offenders including the morose Albert (Gary Maitland), kleptomaniac Mo (Jasmin Riggins) and serial prankster Rhino (William Ruane). Under the careful watch of kindly community service warden Harry (John Henshaw). Following an impromptu trip to a local distillery, the band of misfits are united by their appreciation of whisky, with the down-trodden Robbie eyeing an opportunity for redemption.
