A mixed bag galvanized by Michaela Coel and Arinzé Kene's star chemistry.
Been So Long is a likable movie with a big heart.
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.
This London may be punctuated with dashes of neon and flashes of magic, but it also feels real because it's reflecting the true-to-life multicultural community.
Romcom-musical about single mom has sex and language.
Even when it falls short from being a truly great musical, it's still a good romantic comedy musical, and those aren't so easy to come by.
Coel is flawless, a star in waiting.
I'm giving this film a pass because the leads are what make the movie, everything else around them needs a bit more work.
Director Tinge Krishnan is helped immeasurably by her two leads.
Few things make the heart sink in advance than 'low-budget British musical,' but it's a credit to Krishnan, Walker and the rest of the team that, after a slightly rocky start, I felt fully won over by the end of the film.
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?
Crucially, underneath the music and the soft-focus romance Been So Long makes some poignant observations about community, family and the importance of connection.
