Rowan Joffe's debut film is another adaptation of the Graham Greene novel, Brighton Rock. I saw the picture at the London Film Festival where it was this year's surprise film and seemed to go down fairly well. I'll tell you specifically what I thought of it in the new year, but I'll say this for now: the book and the Boulting Bros.' film adaptation had remarkably different endings. This second film version retains one of those two conclusions, and while I won't say which one, I'll say its definitely the better one.
