Whisky Galore (PG) - 98 mins Comedy, Romance

This remake of Whisky Galore must certainly be commended for its wonderfully picturesque cinematography, which shows the glorious surroundings of the Hebrides, and its touching depiction of a simpler time. Mackinnon’s Whisky Galore is an enjoyable watch made better with a cup of tea (or whisky) in hand! Guy Lambert

 

The film is about the SS Politician, an 8000-ton cargo ship sailing for Kingston, Jamaica and New Orleans with a cargo including 28,000 cases of malt whisky. On 5 February 1941, during gale force winds, she ran aground off the Island of Eriskay in the Outer Hebrides.
