Brighton Rock

Brighton Rock 

When: Fri., Feb. 11, 8 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

Released in the states as Young Scarface (despite having no relation to the American movie gangster), this 1947 adaptation of Graham Greene's existential crime thriller was a breakout role for future film director Richard Attenborough, who portrayed the troubled young criminal Pinkie Brown. Now regarded as one of the best British films of its era, Brighton Rock is a tense piece of work that's also suffused with Greene standbys like Catholic faith and morality. Fun fact: Composer John Barry, who recently passed away, did an unsuccessful stage musical version of the story in 2004. The film was remade last year with Helen Mirren and John Hurt, but check out the original as part of the Museum of Art's film noir series, curated by Independent contributor Laura Boyes. —Zack Smith
