This film has a real Camden flavour to it, starring Mercedes Grower, who grew up in Kentish Town and still lives in the neighbourhood.
It also features the likes of Noel Fielding.
Come On Eileen tells the story of a mum whose two children are about to leave home, and who has a long, lazy-looking summer stretching out in front of her.
Yet all is not exactly rosy in Eileen’s world as her new cricket-playing, dope-smoking boyfriend is not exactly perfect, and she has to contend with demons – including a love of the bottle.
This small budget indie is available on DVD and is a moving – and sometimes very humorous – story.
