Based on the 1947 British noir classic, Rowan Joffe’s BRIGHTON ROCK is set in the mods and rockers era of the 60s. It charts the the headlong fall of Pinkie (Sam Riley CONTROL, FRANKLYN), a razor-wielding disadvantaged teenager hell bent on clawing his way up through the ranks of organized crime. At the heart of the story is the anti-hero Pinkie's relationship with Rose (Riseborough NEVER LET ME GO, MADE IN DAGENHAM) - an apparently innocent young waitress who stumbles on evidence linking Pinkie and his gang to a revenge killing that Pinkie commits.
