Michaela Coel got on our radar as the creator and star of the wonderfully irreverent and divinely funny Chewing Gum. Then she awed us as a no-nonsense boss in the 5-time Emmy-award winning Black Mirror episode, “USS Callister.” Now, she’s come to win our hearts with Netflix’s seemingly steamy musical Been So Long.
WARNING: this trailer may cause swoons.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Romance, rage and revenge. Been So Long is a neon-soaked, modern day romance set on the streets of London’s musical hot-bed of Camden. We follow Simone (Michaela Coel), a dedicated single mother who, on a rare night on the town is charmed by a handsome yet troubled stranger, Raymond (Arinzé Kene), igniting old and new feelings. Set against the backdrop of an ever-changing city, Been So Long is a fresh take on love, life and moving on.
Been So Long hits Netflix October 26.
