artisanal film reviews | by maryann johanson

Leave to Remain movie rating: green light

Leave to Remain green light

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.
I’m “biast” (pro): nothing

I’m “biast” (con): nothing

(what is this about? see my critic’s minifesto)
