Simon Amstell’s debut feature film Benjamin will be released in cinemas on Friday 15th March.
The bittersweet comedy tells the story of Benjamin (Colin Morgan) a rising star filmmaker. About to premiere his difficult second feature 'No Self', Benjamin is thrown into emotional turmoil when Billie, his hard-partying publicist, introduces him to a mesmeric French musician called Noah.
Set among the back streets of East and North London, the film boasts original music from James Righton of Klaxons and great performances from its cast including Colin Morgan, Phénix Brossard, Joel Fry, Jack Rowan, Jessica Raine & Anna Chancellor.
