Should Britain stay in or exit the European Union?


On June 23, 2016, voters can voice which side of the issue they fall on when they take part in a public referendum. In the lead-up to this crucial vote, the new feature-length documentary titled Brexit: The Movie poses an emphatic and persuasive argument for leaving the EU.

A collaboration between 28 European countries, the EU began in the aftermath of World War II.


Back then, it was largely viewed as a noble endeavor designed to enhance economic stability and peaceful interests across the continent.


But increasing opposition contends that the EU has become nothing but a corrupt and all-powerful political tool which effectively works against the will of the very people it should serve.


In their view, the EU proposes and passes new laws and regulations which negatively impact ordinary citizens while benefiting the bureaucrats and select few corporations who remain beyond reproach.

The film explores the formation and make-up of the EU, the lack of transparency and accountability in their operations, the plight of industries and individuals who have struggled under their rule, and warns of their capacity for creating economic calamity, inefficient living conditions, and barriers to advantageous trade deals with other regions throughout the globe.

What would a move away from the EU mean for Britain? The film travels to Switzerland, a country that has steadfastly refused to join the EU, to find the answer.


What the filmmakers discover is a country steeped in growing wealth, decreasing unemployment, and a quality of life many steps improved from their neighboring countries. The Swiss believe that their good fortunes are almost entirely a by-product of abstaining from the EU.

Brexit recognizes the EU referendum as one of the most consequential votes the citizens of Britain are likely to cast in their lifetime. After all, it's been more than 40 years since the fate of the organization was in the hands of the citizens.


According to the film and its many interview subjects, the first and most egregious casualty of continued EU reign is democracy itself.

Is it safe to give a remote government

beyond our control the power to make laws?

the perks, the waste, the cronyism,

the corruption.

And it explores the exciting opportunities
