Eddie Izzard stars in this charming remake of the Ealing Studios classic. WHISKY GALORE! is the charming tale of a community on a remote Scottish Island during WW2 coming together to relieve a sinking ship of its amber cargo: 50,000 cases of whiskey.
Based on the true story of the cargo ship SS Politician running aground off the coast of Eriskay in 1941. The shipwreck and its cargo was like manna from heaven to the islanders, whose domain was totally 'dry', without any type of alcohol.
