Simon Amstell's Benjamin is coming to DVD in August
We described Simon Amstell's Benjamin as "damn good melancholic medicine" when reviewed it back in March so we're pleased to see the film is getting a DVD release on 12th August. Maybe not quite so happy that there doesn't seem to be a Blu-ray release in the pipeline though.
The bittersweet comedy tells the story of Benjamin (Colin Morgan) a rising star filmmaker, who is thrown into emotional turmoil on the brink of premiering his second film, 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 the Klaxons and great performances from its cast including Colin Morgan, Phénix Brossard, Joel Fry, Jack Rowan, Jessica Raine and Anna Chancellor.
