  • This intense, no-fi asylum seeker drama manages to make a big noise with a very small drum.

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

  • Whilst it may falter at times, Leave to Remain does prove a compelling watch and gives voice to a group who rarely have one.

  • 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.

  • 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.
