HBO is getting political in their newest film, starring the one and only Benedict Cumberbatch. And for anyone who doesn’t quite understand Brexit, this is a movie you do not want to miss.
On Friday, December 14th, HBO released the first trailer for Brexit, a film about Dominic Cummings, the man behind Brexit (short for British exit, AKA the United Kingdom leaving the European Union). It covers everything from detailed strategies to the reasoning behind it, including how social media played a key part in winning. So, if you find yourself a little lost in the world of British politics, this is for you.
What’s most fascinating about this film is that, from the trailer, at least, Brexit seems to be taking an unbiased stance towards the controversial topic, looking at it from both sides of the board. Whether you voted for or against, or are simply wanting to know more, this film promises to feature something for everyone.
Brexit will be directed by Toby Haynes, and no doubt many of you will recognize his work in shows like Being Human (UK), The Musketeers, Sherlock, and Doctor Who, to name a few. Brexit is set to premiere in late January on HBO, and while many are extremely excited, some are accusing the film of being nothing more than propaganda. It certainly doesn’t look that way from the trailer, but we’ll know more come January.
