The Toll (2021) – not to be confused with The Toll (from SXSW 2020) – has a 71% Tomatometer score. Review-aggregation site Rotten Tomatoes likes it; audiences are wondering where to watch it. Is The Toll (2021) on Netflix?

Is The Toll on Netflix?

Darkly comic thriller The Toll, starring Michael Smiley and Annes Elwy, had its UK premiere at Glasgow Film Festival (GFF) during the weekend of 25-28 February.

This, despite the fact that director Ryan Andrew Hooper wrapped up filming over two years ago, in December 2018.

The film is not currently on Netflix. It also doesn’t appear to be on streaming services yet. Therefore, viewers wondering where to watch The Toll will have to wait a bit longer before they can watch it online.

Because its premiere was only one month ago, it may take time for the production companies involved to sync up with streaming platforms such as Netflix, Hulu and MUBI.

What is The Toll (2021) about?

Described by GFF as mixing Coen-esque, black comedy elements with the “antihero of Sergio Leone’s spaghetti westerns”, The Toll runs at 1h 23m. 

It comes with various content warnings for strong language, blood and gore, and depictions of death.

Several members of its cast hail from a strong tradition of anti-heroism in UK independent film. 


These include Iwan Rheon (Misfits), Paul Kaye (Blackball), Gwyneth Keyworth (Black Mirror), Steve Oram (Sightseers), and Julian Glover (Black Earth Rising).

The film was shot on location in Pembrokeshire.

The Toll reviews

As previously mentioned, The Toll has picked up good scores overall on Rotten Tomatoes.

Just one of the platform’s Top Critics has so far reviewed the film – another linked review, from the Austin Chronicle’s Richard Whittaker, is actually for the other The Toll (2020). 

Wendy Ide of Screen Daily praised the film’s “youthful exuberance”, writing that its “high tolerance for eccentricity makes for a certain gauche quality”.

Others describe it as a “triumph”, “viciously entertaining” and “always punching exactly at its own weight”.
