WHISKEY GALORE

Instead of glorifying the amber liquid, Whisky Galore! is a love letter to an isolated community trapped in amber. Village Voice

Eddie Izzard is excellent as the pompous English Home Guard officer, as is Fenella Woolgar as his wife, who clearly sympathises with the locals. Radio Times

The inhabitants of a Scottish island try to plunder 50,000 cases of whisky from a nearby stranded ship. A remake of the beloved black and white original film directed by Alexander Mackendrick for Ealing Studios, which was based on the novel by Sir Compton Mackenzie, which itself was based on the real events of 1941 when the S.S. Politician was shipwrecked in the Outer Hebrides leading to an hilarious battle as the wily islanders on nearby Eriskay tried to salvage the huge cargo of whisky on board, enraging the British authorities.
