Film Review – Been So Long (2018) [Watch]

Been So Long

Even with all the content that Netflix has been pumping out this year, they haven’t released many Netflix original musicals. Actually, they haven’t released any…until now! Been So Long is breaking all the molds, becoming the first film from the U.K to be purchased by Netflix back in September 2017. Hopefully that leads to success in a new territory for the streaming giant.

The following review will be spoiler free.


Directed By: Tinge Krishnan

Written By: Che Walker

Starring: Michaela Coel, Arinzé Kene, George MacKay, Ronke Adekoluejo, Ashley Thomas, Joe Dempsie, and Luke Norris

Romance, rage and revenge. Been So Long is a neon soaked, modern-day romance set on the streets of London’s musical hot-bed of Camden. We follow Simone (Coel), a dedicated single mother who, on a rare night on the town is charmed by a handsome yet troubled stranger, Raymond (Kene), igniting old and new feelings. Set against the backdrop of an ever-changing city, Been So Long is a fresh take on love, life and moving on.
