Arinzé Kene & Michaela Coel in First Trailer for Musical 'Been So Long'
"This is Camden, where everyone has a story…" Netflix has finally unveiled an official trailer for an indie romantic musical titled Been So Long, which is premiering at the London Film Festival this month before arriving on Netflix. This honestly looks like the first great movie musical since La La Land, and I've got a really good feeling it's going to be wonderful. Been So Long stars Michaela Coel as Simone, a dedicated single mother who, on an unusual night out on the town, is charmed by a handsome yet troubled stranger named Raymond, played by Arinzé Kene. Also starring George MacKay, Joe Dempsie, Luke Norris, Arsher Ali, Tom Forbes, Ashley Thomas, and Rakie Ayola. This isn't the greatest trailer, but there's still something about this that feels magical. As a fan of musicals myself, I can't wait to see this. Take a peek.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Tinge Krishnan's Been So Long, direct from YouTube:
