Roma and the Flannelettes: A Love Like Yours

    Roma is a woman with a dark past and a troubled present.
    The Flannelettes, led by the women’s refuge manager
    Brenda, are a group of enthusiastic singers formed to
    perform a turn at the karaoke for the Miners’ Welfare in a Yorkshire town. 

    When events conspire to throw Roma in the way of the women’s refuge, she gets to know Brenda’s niece Delie, a lovely lass in her twenties but with a mental age of ten. When Roma learns that Delie has a secret love, everyone is reminded that violence is always around the corner.


    Cameron’s lines are brilliant. He captures the love and caring within a tough community, without over sentimentalising the situation. And he gets the feel of the working men’s club perfectly. You can almost smell the stale ale in the air. Timothy Ramsden
