Benjamin is the debut film from comedian Simon Amstel. It’s sort of semi autobiographical look at his life. It’s the story of an up and coming filmmaker and his blossoming romance with a French musician and his struggle to find a connection. I really enjoyed it, such a sweet and beautiful film. I was invited to this preview screening at the private cinema at the Mayfair Hotel by JakeTM the gay professional social networking group and with whom I’ve been to see a lot of new gay cinema with. I’ve been lucky enough to see some great films with them over the years, including Pride, Call me by your name and Moonlight.
