The much awaited trailer for the film ‘Brighton Rock’ was released last week and we couldn’t be more excited here at John Smedley.
Brighton Rock hosts a cast of great British actors including Helen Mirren, John Hurt and Andy Serkis. The movie is based on a violent youth named Pinkie, who murders a man and marries a naive waitress who could destroy his alibi. He is pursued by a suspicious older woman who both wants to bring him to justice and protect the innocent girl. Expect to see lots of Vespas, Lambretta scooters, mini-skirts and hip huggers.
Costume director for Brighton Rock, Julien Day has not held back in heralding the use of John Smedley clothes throughout the film. Pieces include the infamous ‘Dorset’ three-button long sleeved shirt and ‘Buttercup’ our round neck, long sleeved ladies cardigan.
The official release date is February 4th 2011 and here at John Smedley we’re already excited to book our seats and tuck in to some popcorn! You can watch the trailer and read more about the film by visiting the Clothes on Film blog.
