Critic Reviews for Leave To Remain

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (5)

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…

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.

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

June 19, 2014 | Rating: 3/5

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

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

Compassionate, humane, and deeply touching...
