In Simon Amstell's affecting, bittersweet comedy, a filmmaker is thrown into emotional turmoil by a burgeoning romance and an upcoming film premiere.

Rising young filmmaker Benjamin (Colin Morgan), is thrown into emotional disarray over the impending release of his second feature ‘No Self’. If that was not enough to mess with his emotions, his hard-drinking publicist Billie introduces him to a magnetic French musician called Noah (Phénix Brossard).

This comedy about being weird and struggling for a connection, is a letter to the director’s younger self. In Amstell’s first feature film, he seems to channel Woody Allen, and achieves a warm, heartfelt, and very funny look at the insecurities of our hero Benjamin. Look out for Mark Kermode and Simon Mayo in a cameo as they review Benjamin’s film.
