One of the best UK films of 2018
28 October 2018 | by miabaysSee all my reviews

Been So Long is one of the best British films of the year. It is gorgeously acted, fabulously shot and groundbreaking in its' representations and approach. It captures both the grit and beauty of London and Londoners, and walks the line between being aspirational yet real. Watching it with an audience that reflected the diverse city we see on screen was one of my cinematic highlights of the year because the reaction was huge and joyous. It's a reminder to film commissioners, programmers, gatekeepers - diverse audiences show up for diverse stories. Trust them. It'll reap dividends.
