Brighton Rock Synopsis
Adapted from Graham Greene's brilliant 1939 novel, BRIGHTON ROCK charts the headlong fall of Pinkie, a razor-wielding disadvantaged teenager with a religious death wish.
At the heart of the story is Pinkie's relationship with Rose - an innocent young waitress who stumbles on evidence linking Pinkie and his gang to a revenge killing. After the murder, Pinkie seduces Rose, first in an effort to find out how much she knows and latterly to ensure she will not talk to the police. A love story between a murderer and a witness, can Pinkie trust Rose or should he kill her before she talks to the police? Can Rose trust Pinkie, or is she next in line?
