    Tony Roche was a key member of the writing team that took the style, tone and cast from the award winning The Thick of It on to the big screen.

    The film depicts the farcical diplomatic machinations behind a US and UK led invasion of an unnamed Middle Eastern country that seems to be regarded as a threat to world peace.

    ...a biting satire that is all too believable Phillip French
    The Guardian

    ...an artfully written skit that combines pin-sharp characterisation with brutally effective one-liners. Damon Wise
    The Times

    icily brilliant... uncompromisingly vicious satire..the sharpest, funniest film of the year.
