Following a court appearance during which he’s sentenced to community service, Robbie sneaks into the hospital to visit his girlfriend Leonie and their newborn son and is subsequently overwhelmed. He swears that Luke will not lead the same life has had led. While on community service Robbie meets Rhino, Albert and Mo—all similarly cast out from society and hard up to make ends meet. Little did Robbie imagine how a drink could change their lives—not cheap booze, but the finest malt whiskies. His newly discovered palate and delicate nose lead Robbie and his crew to a strange new world—the Scottish Highlands—and the biggest gamble of their lives.

Limited Releases: Will New Limited Releases be a Disaster?

April 12th, 2013

There are nine limited releases on this week's list, including two opening in Canada. Of those, there are only a few with any buzz or strong reviews. To the Wonder is the most buzz-worthy, but the reviews will hurt it. It's a Disaster has good reviews and a great cast for a limited release, but its genre will hold it back.
