Whisky Galore

Director: Gilles MacKinnon Starring: Gregor Fisher, Eddie Izzard, Ellie Kendrick. UK 2016. 98mins

Their ‘water of life’ strictly rationed during the Second World War, the inhabitants of a Hebridean island can’t believe their luck when the SS Politician runs aground just north of them with 24,000 cases of whisky on board. A starry cast includes Gregor Fisher (TV’s Rab C Nesbitt), Ellie Kendrick (Game Of Thrones), and Eddie Izzard as an incompetent Home Guard officer. The islanders’ efforts to steal and conceal the Politician’s booty are both ingenious and hugely comic, and cameos from John Sessions as the doctor trying to heal alcohol withdrawal and James Cosmo (Barney Thompson) as a hellfire preacher are pure joy.
