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 naive 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 1938 novel to 1964 - at the height of Britain's Mods and Rockers riots.
