London to Brighton 18 Regional Premiere
Friday 17th November, 5.25pm (T)
Tuesday 21st November, 6.15pm (T)
Director: Paul Andrew Williams, Feature, 85 minutes, UK, 2006.
With a shoe-string budget first-time director Paul Andrew Williams has made a feature film that had Sean Connery applauding far beyond the closing credits at Edinburgh Film Festival this year.
A prostitute called Kelly with ripped clothes and a black eye bundles a 12-year old girl into a public lavatory in London. A man called Derek is after them and some very unpleasant people are after Derek. Very afraid, in order to get away, they decide to jump on a train to Brighton. To find out what exactly has happened we have to wait as Williams unfolds his story in a clever series of flashbacks.
The tension is electric as you wait to discover what exactly Kelly and the girl have done to merit the wrath of Derek, and what will be done to them if they are caught...
“A cold-sweat gangland thriller with a twist of social-realist compassion: Get Carter meets Cathy Come Home...a dazzling debut” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
