Movie Info

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.

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.
