Brighton Rock (2011)

[cert 15, 110 mins]

Based on the novel by Graham Greene, Rowan Joffe’s Brighton Rock is set in the mods and rockers era of the 60s. It charts the headlong fall of Pinkie, a razor-wielding disadvantaged teenager hell bent on clawing his way up through the ranks of organised crime. At the heart of the story is Pinkie's relationship with Rose, an apparently innocent young waitress who stumbles on evidence linking Pinkie and his gang to a revenge killing.
