  • More details on this film at the Internet Movie Database


A BBC-TV series broadcast in the Spring of 2010, writer Kay Mellor's adaptation of her own stage play is now a feature film starring Billie Piper, Sue Johnston and Alun Armstrong, along with newcomer Theo James as the Polish heartthrob that quiet Betty falls for, hopelessly, in 1950's Leeds. Kay Mellor writes: 'Mum and I were washing-up one day when she confided in me she'd had an affair before I was born...I realised she'd kept this secret for 30 years and that she still loved this man. I knew these two periods of mum's life were intrinsically linked and I was compelled to write the play.'
