Brighton Rock

1 Feb 2014

The first great classic of British crime film enshrines Brighton as a brooding backdrop for Graham Greene’s tale of gang culture in the inter-war underworld. Richard Attenborough gives a remarkable performance as Pinkie, a psychopathic young gangster who marries a naïve waitress to stop her testifying against him as a murderer. This screening is introduced by Barry Forshaw, one of the UK’s leading experts on crime fiction and film, and the author of British Crime Film: Subverting the Social Order. Barry Forshaw will be signing his various books on British cinema after the screening.
