Scuzzy marvellous! - London to Brighton review by Kurtz

Spoiler Alert
08/11/2009

A worthy addition to the lengthening list of unflinching examinations of Britain’s unflattering underbelly, “London to Brighton” throws us in at the deep end of a trick that has turned horribly wrong, and from that point on we share the fears of the central characters as they seek to escape with their lives. It’s a brilliantly spare piece of storytelling, with nearly all the performances convincing and drawing us into the action. Johnny Harris is excellent as the heartless pimp, with Lorraine Stanley superbly gutsy as the tart with a heart. There’s a certain grim humour in the way that, needing raising seventy quid fast on a dank, windswept day on a desolate seafront, she mutters “I’ll get it”, smoothes her miniskirt down over goosepimpled thighs and trudges off in search of the inevitable john…

Dark, gripping, disturbing - no mockney gangsters here - London to Brighton review by RP

Spoiler Alert
09/05/2012

Gritty, gripping, scary, brutal, plenty of f-ing and blinding – perhaps not the best film to watch with your mother. Told in flashback, it tells the tale of an 11 year old girl procured by an experienced prostitute for an older, powerful man, and the bloody events that follow. The casting is excellent and the performance by young Georgia Groome is outstanding as is that of the lead actress, Lorraine Stanley. The film is genuinely disturbing in both the subject matter and the events – it tells a tale of the dark underside of London society. The downside is that the storyline, the subject matter and the characters are relentlessly dark and if you're looking for light entertainment then you won't find it here. Watching, it's hard to tell that it was filmed on an extremely low budget: the writer/director, photographer and cast should be congratulated on an excellent film. And please note: there are no Guy Ritchie mockney gangsters among the hard men here. Highly recommended – 4/5 stars.

Desperately sad and brilliantly acted - London to Brighton review by CP Customer

Spoiler Alert
06/10/2012

A grim portrayal of life as a street kid or sex worker in the heart of London. The female leads are excellent and you really feel their terror as the situation spirals out of their control. The climax is shocking and brutal but not totally unexpected, with some hope of safety or a better life for at least some of the characters.
