Adapted from Graham Greene’s brilliant 1939 novel, Brighton Rock charts the headlong fall of Pinkie, a razor-wielding disadvantaged teenager.

Screenwriter Rowan Joffe’s debut feature 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 organised 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.
