Cool actors playing cool characters in a Camden that Londoners will actually recognise (grotty, gorgeous, just about keeping gentrification at bay). Who could ask for anything more?

October 17, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Been So Long is a likable movie with a big heart.

October 14, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

For a musical film, [it's] not very musical at all, with a discordant soundtrack that sounds like castoff 90s R&B and vocalists not up to the task of meeting the melodies.
