CK Films in association with Red Rock Entertainment have announced the digital release of its award-winning feature, BRIGHTON starring Larry Lamb, Marion Bailey, Lesley Sharp, Phil Davis and Adjoa Andoh, directed by Stephen Cookson and adapted by Melanie Harris and Stephen Cookson from the original stageplay Brighton Beach Scumbags by Steven Berkoff. The film, which has garnered multiple awards in film festivals across the world, will be available on DVD from June 07 2021 and on various digital platforms including Amazon, Apple TV and Google Play in the subsequent weeks.
A typical day in Brighton during 2005 when two working class couples – Derek and Dinah, Dave and Doreen are on a day trip to the beach. But Brighton is changing, and the friends can’t keep up. The result is a vengeful act of violence that exposes the gaps and similarities between class, gender and sexual orientations.
The troubled characters have lived in a bubble for far too long and when they return to the place where they met their partners it’s a dramatic shock how Brighton – the town they knew and loved – isn’t the same. Brighton compassionately explores the mutual incomprehension inherent in the divide between the middle and working classes. This comedy / drama, which takes place in 2005 and 1960, is as relevant today and it was then.
