About The Angels' Share

Robbie (Paul Brannigan) is a petty criminal who is sentenced to 300 hours of community payback for his constant offences. He's not happy about it, but wants to avoid prison and is determined to make his life better so that his baby son doesn't turn out the same way he did. He soon makes friends with other men on his service team, including the dozy Albert (Gary Maitland), and they bond over the frustration of being unemployed and seemingly unemployable. When they visit a distillery, they are shown an extremely rare and expensive whisky, and hatch a plan to get rich. The cast is made up of talented unknowns (including star Brannigan who is himself an ex-offender turned community support worker, and Maitland who is a binman by trade) and established British names.
