Benny and Jolene

Benny and Jolene
By Film Hub Wales

"Filled with natural performances, the film is improvised for the majority - and the situations the pair find themselves in lead to hilarious and somewhat recognisable circumstances."Kathryn Williams, Wales Online


Jamie Adams’ feature debut stars Craig Roberts (Submarine) and Charlotte Ritchie (Fresh Meat) as an up and coming folk duo. 19 year old Jolene is having trouble convincing her writing partner Benny to become more commercial.  Too many industry types get involved, leaving Jolene feeling dazed and confused and Benny marginalised.

Now they are on a crowded tour busy on their way to a festival in a beautiful, yet remote, location - forcing them to confront their ambitions and emotions for the first time.

Can they both get back to where they once belonged, and move forward together, or will all be lost in the noise and confusion?
