Warm, beautiful and funny, romantic comedy.

Colin Morgan is great as the insecure, but lovable filmmaker, about to premiere his second film at the LFF. It explores male friendships and first dates.

The film pokes fun at film festivals and art events. The rolling in paper as an art form is hilarious, to the grand opening of a chair. Even the cat scenes are funny. I came away with a smile on my face.

Written and directed by Simon Amstell from Never Mind the Buzzcock fame.

Lots of recognisable London locations.

A joy to watch again.
