Critic Reviews for Sitting in Limbo

All Critics (8) | Top Critics (3)

There was a happy ending, if you could call it that: Bryan was allowed to remain in his own country. But the film left us in no doubt about the emotional toll.

This was hugely affecting drama, but I would have liked to have seen in it more of the politicians who drove this policy rather than the faceless uniformed guards who had to implement it at the sharp end.

A gripping, upsetting and tenderly told dramatic memoir of one man's ordeal during the Windrush scandal. Its timing could not have been better.

June 9, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

A British immigration debacle that is the very definition of "Kafkaesque nightmare."

May 27, 2021 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

Sitting in Limbo doesn't aim to warp the truth, to glorify any one party. This isn't about rewriting history, it's about making sure the true mistakes and hardships are finally given the weight they deserve.

June 29, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

An absorbing, rewatchable drama that quietly told loud truths, and wore its anger remarkably lightly.
