New Clip From Benny & Jolene
A new look at the British comedy

30 April 2014  |  Written by Helen O'Hara  |  Source: Exclusive

British comedy needs a constant supply of new blood, and the latest infusion is Benny & Jolene, from feature directing debutant Jamie Adams and Fresh Meat actress Charlotte Ritchie, alongside Submarine star Craig Roberts. Check out a new clip from the film here, featuring Ritchie and Rosamund Hanson.

 

The story sees Ritchie's Jolene, a rising folk singer, facing the aftermath of a sudden breakthrough. The music industry is trying to persuade her to become more commercial, but her writing partner Benny (Roberts) is firmly resistant, and Jolene finds herself pulled between the two as she sets off to play at a Festival.

The film was inspired by the Mumblecore efforts of the Duplass brothers and has an improvisational style, but promises a mix of comedy and heart that bodes well. Benny & Jolene also stars Dolly Wells, Tom Rosenthal , Nick Mohammed, and Ian Smith, and hits UK cinemas on June 6.
