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 a hilarious battle ensued. The wily islanders on nearby Eriskay tried to salvage the huge cargo of whisky on board, enraging the British authorities.
Starring Eddie Izzard and Ellie Kendrick.
