Adapted from Graham Greene’s brilliant 1939 novel, BRIGHTON ROCK charts the headlong fall of a razor-wielding disadvantaged teenager intent on clawing his way up through the ranks of organized crime. Helen Mirren, Sam Riley and Andrea Riseborough lead the cast in a bold new update set against the backdrop of rioting Mods and Rockers in the British 1960s.
The Provincetown International Film Festival (PIFF) is dedicated to showcasing new achievements in independent film and honoring the work of acclaimed and emerging directors, producers and actors. PIFF is equally devoted to expanding the audience for independent film and to serving our Provincetown community by filling the void for annual film programming and reflecting the community’s rich diversity in our selected films and honorees. An integral part of PIFF’s mission is to contribute to the economic and creative vitality of America’s oldest art colony.
