Directed by Tinge Krishnan, adapted from Ché Walker’s hit stage play and retaining Arthur Darvill’s original songs, BEEN SO LONG is a contemporary musical set on the streets of London’s Camden Town. Krishnan shoots the streets bathed in neon and enriched with romantic possibilities. BAFTA winner Michaela Coel lights up the big screen as dedicated and whip-smart single mum Simone whose encounter with the confident yet secretive lothario Raymond, played by THE PASS star Arinzé Kene (reprising his role from the Young Vic theatre production, currently blazing a trail in his one-man hit show MISTY), has her head spinning.
The film is followed by a Q&A with producer Amanda Jenks (with more cast and crew to be announced).
Following the film there’ll be a DJ set in the Cafébar showcasing songs from the film to shake a tail feather to - you'll be ready for it.
