  • That Graham has managed to make a functioning drama out of Brexit, let alone such a riveting one, feels a little bit miraculous.

  • The film does an impressive job explaining the complicated operation while still delivering a fast-paced and entertaining story.

  • It's simplistic but in its simplicity it captures the appalling crudeness and lack of nuance that is often the populist message from Donald Trump, Doug Ford and others.

  • It's reductive and ham-fisted in its direction, sure, but still makes for a breezily engaging tale.
