The film is about Benjamin, a rising star filmmaker, on the brink of premiering his difficult second film "No Self" at the London Film Festival when Billie, his hard drinking publicist introduces him to a mesmeric French musician called Noah. (Directed by famed British comedian Simon Amstell, the film is autobiographical and deeply personal.)

Critic Reviews for Benjamin

From this delicate premise, "Benjamin" wrings a lot of warmly perceptive, occasionally acidic humor.

What's best about the film, though, is its concession to tenderness.

If this romcom were any lower-key, it might go off-radar - or off-gaydar - without trace. But Colin Morgan, as failing Irish-London film-maker, is terrific at doleful, muted self-regard.

A miraculously heartfelt love story, sweet and poignant in all its awkwardness.

These characters are so annoyingly hapless, you expect them to curl up on the floor and suck their thumbs at any moment.

Morgan is charmingly flustered in an early-Hugh Grant way, and Amstell has a knack for biting one-liners about the fundamental emptiness of human existence.
