Set among the back streets of East and North London, Benjamin is the feature debut from the comedian, actor, writer and director Simon Amstell.

The bittersweet comedy tells the story of Benjamin 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.
