Years ago ? I caught the last 45 minutes of this Romeo film on telly?......... as a Lincolnshire lass ...this film for me brought a lot of identification and the accompanying emotion - ouchh !
I knew nothing about the film, the name, writer or director and I never caught any of the credits at the end due to shell shock after watching!
.....I have always looked out for the 'Romeo' film on telly hoping it'll be back sometime ( never proactive about pressing bruises ) and I was glad to catch it tonight on telly. Ooooow it hurt again in places as it is so beautifully observed, written and acted.....but it's all good..........
I am so glad that film was made and it is out there ........... ...thanks for that,

hi bam yeah i watched it for the first time last night and i totally agree. beautifully observed and poignant, and great performances (hence great directing, natch.) if it wasn't sunny and i wasn't going climbing i'd probably stay in and watch it all over again this morning!

Love the story Bam, it's very similar to my SM experience.
Years ago I was watching tv really late one night (probably C4 or film 4 but cant remember) and a short film came on about a boxer, didn't know it at the time but it was a Shane Meadows Short with Paddy as the boxer. I ripped it off and attempted to make my first film. It kind of influenced me to go to Drama College and train as an actor. I got into the college I wanted but it was a tough training and in my second year I had a real crisis of confidence which doing a Shakespeare production. I didn't think I was good anymore but mostly wondered why I was busting my nuts when the type of thing I really wanted to do didn't even seem to exist. I was probably close to leaving when Room for Romeo Brass came out on DVD. I had liked 24/7 but had been put off by the big picture of pants and wasn't expecting much. My god did it blow me away. I was totally inspired.
I’ve read some sentimental rubbish about books finding their readers, but when you stumble across a film and it really affects you its bloody great.
