Movie Info

Cult favourite Matt Berry offers his unique take on Brexit in this one-off comedy special to mark the passing of the Article 50 deadline. Reuniting with collaborator Arthur Mathews for the first time since Toast of London, Berry plays rogue historian Michael Squeamish, who is on a mission to discover the origins of Brexit, and offer some interesting opinions on Britain's current plight along the way. Through creative use of archive footage and filmed interviews, Road to Brexit unashamedly plays fast and loose with the facts to create a joyously surreal whistle-stop tour of Britain's relationship with Europe, from the 1950s right up to Brexit.

Critic Reviews for Road to Brexit

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (4)

Being absurd, inexplicable, even surreal, Berry's mad half-hour made total sense. Unlike Brexit, on the other hand, it was over all too swiftly.

Easily the best thing to emerge from the whole brexit imbroglio. OK, not much competition, but still...

The thing Berry and Mathews are selling is fake news... But there is a kernel of something. The absurdity goes both ways.

Apart from the most purely Berry bits, the writing (by Toast co-creator Arthur Mathews) fell flat.

I chuckled a few times at the codology, while feeling it could have been much funnier.
