Plot Summary: With the aesthetics of a British gangster flick and the soul of classic film noir, screenwriter Rowan Joffe's debut feature "Brighton Rock" tells the story of Pinkie, an ambitious teenage gangster who will stop at nothing to make a name for himself in Britain's sinister world of organized crime. His aspirations are nearly derailed when Rose, a na´ve local waitress, stumbles upon evidence linking him to a revenge killing. To keep his alibi alive, Pinkie seduces Rose, weaving a chilling web of deception and passion, violence and love. Set in the picturesque seaside resort of Brighton, England, the film updates Graham Greene's iconic 1939 novel to 1964-at the height of Britain's Mods and Rockers riots-and stars the sexy, up-and-coming British pair Sam Riley ("Control," "On the Road"), in a performance of intense cunning and charm, and Andrea Riseborough ("Made in Dagenham" and the upcoming "W.E." directed by Madonna) as the young couple. Veterans Helen Mirren and John Hurt co-star as friends who set out to protect Rose from Pinkie and the dangerous world she is quickly falling into. Rowan Jaffe's first feature is a triumph, perfectly capturing Graham Greene's violent and sexually daring masterpiece.
