Based on the iconic Graham Greene novel and set in 1964 s Mods- and Rockers-infused Britain, screenwriter Rowan Joffe s debut feature BRIGHTON ROCK embraces the classic elements of film noir and the British gangster film to tell the story of Pinkie, a desperate youth who is hell bent on clawing his way up through the ranks of organized crime. When a young and very innocent waitress, Rose, stumbles on evidence linking him to a revenge killing, he sets out to seduce her to secure her silence. Starring up-and-coming British actors Sam Riley (Control) and Andrea Riseborough as the young couple, and co-starring veterans Helen Mirren (The Queen, Red) and John Hurt (Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, V for Vendetta) as two friends who set out to save Rose from Pinkie s deviant designs, BRIGHTON ROCK is a sexy, stylized re-telling of one of the classic tales of innocence and evil.
Graham Greene's 1938 novel about a sociopathic young British thug and his co-dependent girlfriend receives an uneven treatment in this modernized film adaptation. Read morePublished 4 months ago by Transcendental Thomist
I purchased this movie because I adore Sam Riley. He's an excellent actor.
It is a good story with a surprising ending.
If you are a Sam Riley fan he is really good in this movie (and evil!) you will like it. I also love Sean Harris who has a small, but great part in this. Read morePublished 14 months ago by T. Hellstrom

This flick is too violent and the characters are not acting normal. I could not give any sympathy to any of these individuals. Read morePublished on June 30, 2013 by christine c
