"There’s little new in this remake of the 1949 classic, but its gentle wit is warming and welcome. Its setting on the imaginary isle of Todday lends itself to gorgeous colour photography and the gentle, subversive wit of the original has been left intact"
- Kate Muir, The Times

"What makes the film so pleasurable is the humour and lyricism with which it tells its rousing story of whisky-loving small timers coming together together to keep officialdom at bay"
- Geoffrey MacNab, The Independent

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.
