Trivia

Sam Riley (Pinkie) and Sean Harris (Hale) have portrayed Joy Division lead singer, Ian Curtis. Sam Riley played Curtis in Control (2007), and Sean Harris did so in 24 Hour Party People (2002). This mirrors Dead Man's Shoes (2004) which starred Paddy Considine and Toby Kebbell, both of whom played Joy Division's Manager, Rob Gretton, in 24 Hour Party People (2002) and Control (2007), respectively. Also, it reunites two stars of Control (2007), Riley, and Craig Parkinson, who played Tony Wilson. See more »

Brighton rock review
5 September 2011 | by natalie-amSee all my reviews

I decided to watch Brighton Rock after I had heard good things about it and I thought it would be interesting to watch. It seemed different to other films and in a genre of it's own. It was not a bad film but at the same time it wasn't the best,I would say stick to the novel and original. The start was very slow. Helen Mirren and Sam Riley gave amazing performances and owned the film, while Andrea Riseborough gave a great performance as the annoying and needy Rose. The performances and cast make up for the lack of excitement. There are a few twist within and some action scenes that make the film that bit more interesting. It's a rememberable film but I wouldn't plan on watching it again.
