Well i enjoyed it & I'm not American
30 December 2018 | by alfieosullivanSee all my reviews

I'm assuming all the hate for this movie is from Trump supporters, even though it has nothing to do him & nor is he even mentioned in the movie. I enjoyed it, a) because it's the kind of thing that I wouldn't be surprised happening in the US & b) its very reminiscent of what I've directly seen happen to families & friends over Brexit (Well apart from the CPU part of the movie) Ok the acting is pretty naff in spots but overall, it's a good film & it keeps you on edge watching it unfold.
