Editor's Note
Screenwriter Rowan Joffe makes his feature directorial debut with this adaptation of author Graham Greene's 1939 novel about an ambitious British gangster who will stop at nothing in his quest for ultimate power. Britain, 1964: Pinkie (Sam Riley) is well on his way to becoming one of the most powerful figures in the British underworld when naïve waitress Rose (Andrea Riseborough) links him to a brutal murder. In order to ensure that Rose remains silent about the crime, Pinkie seduces her, and begins tracking her every move. John Hurt, Andy Serkis, Sean Harris, and Oscar winner Helen Mirren co-star.

Expert Review Brighton Rock - DVD Review
filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 12/27/2011 5:00 AM
John Boulting's 1947 adaptation of Graham Greene's Brighton Rock, based off a screenplay by Greene and the dramatist Terence Rattigan, is a tough picture, shot through with brilliant aesthetic and emotional corrosiveness. By tough, I don't mean that it is an especially challenging or groundbreaking work: The film, like the novel, is an entertainment first and foremost, albeit a savage and tremendously effective one.

Professional Reviews

Chicago Sun-Times
"BRIGHTON ROCK is a film of ominous gloom. The sea rolls darkly under the pier, the full cries are forlorn, the music is mournful, the colors are muted." 08/24/2011

New York Times
"Mr. Joffe has turned BRIGHTON ROCK into a full-scale film noir with the stylistic undertow of a more modern British gangster movie." 08/25/2011

USA Today
3 stars out of 4 -- "The shabbiest parts of Brighton, the British seaside resort town, are captured vividly in this underworld thriller. Helen Mirren turns in a nuanced performance..." 08/31/2011
