The British Blacklist is offering 3 pairs of tickets to watch the limited UK run of Been So Long!

Fresh from its world première last week at the BFI London Film Festival, ‘Been So Long‘ is enjoying an exclusive 11-cinema event tour as part of Birds’ Eye View’s RECLAIM THE FRAME programme; playing just 10 cities/11 cinema dates UK-wide and kicking-off in Black History Month, the tour commences on Oct 22nd and will feature Q&As with the filmmakers and actors, including Michaela Coel and Arinzé Kene. The film launches globally on Netflix on 26 October.

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.

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 (Michaela Coel), a dedicated single mother who, on a rare night on the town, is charmed by a handsome yet troubled stranger, Raymond (Arinzé 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.

Krishnan shoots the streets bathed in neon and enriched with romantic possibilities. BAFTA® winner Coel lights up the big screen opposite Kene who’s reprising his role from the 2009 Young Vic theatre production. This charismatic pair leads an all-singing and dancing ensemble populated by a wealth of homegrown talent. Ronke Adekoluejo steals scenes as Simone’s fearless best friend Yvonne, while the volatile Gil (George MacKay) has a score to settle at the bar owned by Barney (Luke Norris). Other faces to note include Rakie Ayola (Twelfth Night movie) and Arsher Ali (The Ritual), with the eclectic soundtrack adding a soulful personality of its own.
