REVIEW:

When I first read the above synopsis before watching the film, I thought another British swear fest about pimps, gangsters with guns and hookers who chain smoke that will no doubt un-impress. How wrong was I as London to Brighton took me completely by surprise, in more ways than one.

Firstly was how unsettling I found this film to be. The subject is a touchy one and not many film makers are brave enough to make a movie about underage sex.

Secondly was how impressed by the cast I was. Iíll be honest, I didnít recognise anyone in this film, and casting a bunch of unknowns can be a big gamble. But the lead acting performances are strong and realistic, from both females, especially newcomer Georgia Groome, who plays the venerable 13 year old with great conviction. The supporting cast was also good, which is only marred by the weak gangsterís son.

Thirdly was the budget, shot on an estimated £500,000 the film has a far more expensive production feel to it and would give any over priced American thriller a run for its money. Itís also a perfect example for any budding independent film maker out there.

Written and directed by Paul Andrew Williams (The Cottage), London to Brighton is his first feature film and he does a great job of telling the gruesome story and the use of suggestive camera angles and raw dialogue get the storyís main topic across, to a shocking effect. From the start and throughout the 78 minute running time the film doesnít lag, things unravel perfectly through well placed flashbacks, there is some great use of music and a couple of scenes will stay with me for a long time.

But London to Brighton isnít a perfect film though, there are some flaws, certain aspects of the film that weíre left unexplained, which I felt needed to be answered, and more interaction with the two female leads, character background etc, wouldnít have gone a miss, but other than that Paul Williams has made a debut to remember.

To sum it up London to Brighton is a good film, and it makes a refreshing change from flashy camera angles, effect layered cut scenes that inhabit most British thrillers theses days. Its gritty acting and storytelling at its British best, with a satisfying ending.
