A rising young filmmaker is thrown into emotional turmoil by a burgeoning romance and the upcoming premiere of his second feature. British comedian Simon Amstell’s semi-autobiographical debut feature offers a perfect blend of comedy and tragedy.

‘Amstell's generosity in mining his own anxieties about celebrity, intimacy and the blunt desire to be loved is proof that pain can be productive.’ ★★★★ Simran Hans, The Observer

‘A self-aware movie that is never more entertaining than when it’s pillorying the dilettantism of its central characters’ ★★★★ Kevin Maher, The Times
