Director: PAUL ANDREW WILLIAMS
As a beat-up young hooker and a teenage runaway wait for the fast express out of Victoria Station to a hideaway at Brighton seaside, their breathless race against time brings the British gangster thriller up to speed in an assured debut by writer/director Paul Williams in the genre that Grahame Greene once made famous.
The awful truth of what they did as they run for their lives from a pimp and pedophile is told in a series of flashbacks as they make their way to what they hope is a safe house by the beach. Amid gritty and energetic rigor of London to Brighton, a race is on for each character out for himself, yet somehow dependent on the other.
