Ken Loach, the British master of working-class foibles, presents the story of Robbie (played by Paul Brannigan), a Glasgow ne’er-do-well who suddenly, with the birth of his first child, needs to start his life all over again — in the whiskey business no less. It’s as heartwarming and uplifting as any tale could be that features vicious beatings, grand larceny, and more F-words in the dialogue than a gangster flick. But then that’s more or less the specialty of Loach and his longtime screenwriter Paul Laverty (Looking for Eric, The Wind that Shakes the Barley). Robbie and his dim-bulb mates may remind us of Irvine Welsh’s Trainspotting bunch, but the denouement is pure Loach. Thank you to the filmmakers for putting English subtitles on the stateside release – the Glaswegian banter would be almost impenetrable without them. (101 min.)
