Disclaimer: this author was unable to watch the Premiere of BREXIT The Movie in London on May 11th, and had to make do with what the papers said.
That, however was truly interesting, especially as some papers here in our country were oblivious while foreign media did take notice, with the expected sneering (‘older public dressed up for this’) from the institutional EU propagandists and the left-leaning ‘culture’ movie critics.
