Editorial Reviews

A riveting race against time through Britain’s brutal underworld…

Kelly (Lorraine Stanley), a desperate prostitute, is bullied by her pimp into finding an underage girl for the sadistic pleasure of a ruthless mobster. She discovers Joanne (Georgia Groome), a 12-year-old runaway, who naively complies. But when the pedophile turns violent, Kelly intervenes and everything goes horribly wrong. Now the two girls are on the run, and innocence has nowhere to hide…

A startling debut from British writer-director Paul Andrew Williams, London To Brighton is the critically acclaimed urban thriller that has been called one of the most important British films of the new millennium. Violent, uncompromising and utterly enthralling, it features an excellent cast, razor sharp dialogue and an edge-of-your-seat, heart pounding climax.

BONUS FEATURES: Deleted Scenes/Alternate Ending,
Behind-the-Scenes Footage, Commentary with director Paul Andrew Williams

4.0 out of 5 stars Brutal film, well performed August 11, 2009
Format:DVD
It is too bad that unknown films like this take years to make it over the pond. An obvious low budget character film, but everyone involved gave some convincing and sad performances. This story follows two days in the life of a prostitute and an underage girl as things fall apart after a bad client visit. The time line flashes back and forth between the event itself, the brief time before, and then the present day/time as the girls flee from London to Brighton. Obviously something bad has happened (we do not see all of it until near the end) and the affected mob family wants to locate the two girls and exact their revenge. The ending is brutal, but in a way that does not make you want to throw the disc in the garbage.

The supplements are lengthy and include:
* 8 minute making of, very logistical, non-narrated
* 24 minute Q&A session of the crew at a panel-like setting/screening
* 3.5 minute audition recording for one of the ladies
* 8.5 minutes of deleted scenes, extremely low quality, not worthy
* 1 minute alternate ending, would have been way too heartless to leave in
* 1 minute of outtakes - not even watchable, skip it

Not for the light hearted rental evening, but worth your time.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best Brit-Flicks of the 21st Century February 16, 2008
By Kali
Format:DVD
CONTAINS SPOILERS

It's the early hours of the morning and a 12 year old girl called Joanne played by an amazing Georgia Groome and a jaded prostitute Kelly, an understated Loraine Stanley are huddling together in a London toilet, Kelly's face look like it has been put through a compactor and Joanne's clothes are ripped and torn. Told in flash backs mainly from the points of view of Kelly and Joanne, the plot follows a trail that leads back to a scene of carnage where both child and prostitute have played a part in the brutal stabbing of a man.

But this is no ordinary man who has been stabbed, (who would have thought that Golly from Monarch of the Glen could play such a gross character so well!) for starters he has a liking for little girls, he also has a son Stuart, played with delicious violence by Sam Spruell who is a violent gangster and who wants some answers and he wants them now so the Kelly and Joanne are on the run but they have no real idea what they can do to ensure their safety so they leg it to Brighton and in doing so forge a relationship that will bind them together through the most terrible of times that have yet to come.

Hunted down by Kelly's psychotic and cowardly pimp Derek on behalf of Stuart, you know it is only a matter of time before Kelly and Joanne are captured, stuffed in the boot of a car and made to come face to face with Stuart in a remote field were Derek and his friend are made to dig a grave which at first we all think is for Joanne and Kelly.
What happens next is as shocking as it is exhilarating and it is well worth seeing just for the end ten minutes of the movie.

With a cracking soundtrack,

5.0 out of 5 stars Spirit on the streets November 30, 2012
By pipnuts
Format:DVD
Life on the streets can be rough, just ask anyone who lives there. But there are decent people struggling to stay decent on the streets. This film is a strong depiction of the battle to remain human in the face of desperation and exploitation. Kelly (Lorraine Stanley) is a prostitute forced by her pimp to find a girl for a special client. Eleven year old Joanne is a runaway who falls into her path. A realistic depiction of a seedy underbelly of British Society, with strong acting and a strong script. Disturbing and gripping. Not one for the faint hearted.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only 5 reviews? CRIMINAL. January 27, 2011
By C. Park
Format:DVD
"L to B" is a most unusual sort of film. Rare is it that I am riveted by a film to such an extent that I ignore nature's call, but this one.....whoah. I would have refused to take my eyes off the screen even had a Chevy rammed right through the living room wall. There were no moments of lulling, no moment where you could take a breath and collect your thoughts- all you knew was that a horror was happening, had happened, or maybe hadn't happened...and oh, god what is gonna happen? a child locked in a bathroom wearing lipstick gives you an uneasiness that can only be satisfied by not moving a muscle. Whoever called this film "slight" in a previous review ought to have their head examined. There is nothing at all slight about this film, its a sucker punch, one a minute, for 90 minutes.
And not only that, but the acting is so good that it isn't even acting. Sam Spruell was one of the most understated gangsters i have ever seen on screen, and he made me as nervous as Javier Bardem's cattleprod-bearing psycho did in "No Country for Old Men". The ending wrapped things up in a completely schizophrenic way that I don't think I could have possibly seen coming. I can't say it is one of my favorite films. It simply takes too much out of you, and is so bleak and horrifying that it is best rewatched only to give others the benefit of seeing it for the first time. But it is a masterpiece.

This movie came highly recommended and I can see why - it's inspired on every cinematic level. However, it's not an easy film to watch - but stay with it and it'll be well worth your time and effort. Because of the British dialects, the English subtitles were essential for me to closely follow the screenplay (one of the great benefits of watching it at home on DVD.) An intensely cathartic experience and a brilliant directorial debut from Paul Andrew Williams. It'll have you searching for superlatives afterwards - a must-see!
