Pinkie is not a pretty character. He’s ambitious and ruthless. A razor-wielding teenager who’s has dragged himself up for the grime and is now clawing his way to the top of a seedy and literally cut-throat underworld. Brighton Rock is a doomed romance. A warped love story between a murderer and a witness.
When a young waitress, Rose stumbles upon evidence linking Pinkie and his gang to a revenge killing carried out by Pinkie himself he decides to seduce her. At first this is to find out just how much she knows but later this is to keep her silent and from going to the police. Will Pinkie kill Rose to shut her up? Or is Pinkie, himself doomed?
