Critic Reviews for Leave To Remain

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (1)

A convincing attempt to give a voice to some of Britain's most marginalised residents.

June 17, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

With improv-style performances, using stories based on real-life experiences, this film has a strong blast of authenticity to shine light on a big issue.

June 24, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

If the more melodramatic strains of the script (co-written with Charlotte Colbert) are occasionally at odds with the cast's naturalistic input, the overall picture remains convincing and engaging.

June 22, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The subject matter is downbeat but Goodison, helped by a likeable young cast, brings moments of humour and lyricism to the storytelling.

June 20, 2014 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Compassionate, humane, and deeply touching interconnected stories about teenage asylum seekers in the UK, based on real stories and performed by young immigrant actors with similar experiences.

June 20, 2014 | Full Review…

Goodison displays a sure, Shane Meadows-like touch with his lively unknown leads, and finds eloquent, cinematic ways of describing their hopes, dreams and fears.
