You loved her in the British sitcom “Chewing Gum,” and now Michaela Coel is playing a single mum wooed by a “handsome yet troubled stranger” in the film “Been So Long,” premiering Oct. 26 on Netflix.
The plot is described as “a neon soaked, modern day romance set on the streets of London’s Camden Town. We follow Simone (Coel), a dedicated single mother who, on a rare night on the town is charmed by a handsome yet troubled stranger, Raymond (Arinze Kene); igniting old and new feelings.
Coel charmed U.S. audiences when her series “Chewing Gum” – about a 24-year-old shop assistant hell bent on losing her virginity and becoming more worldly – was made available on Netflix in October 2016.
