Brighton Rock: Graham Greene

Which side are you on?

There's Ida Arnold. She likes a glass of port, thinks in cliches and believes in right and wrong. She represents the World.

And then there's Pinkie. He's as ascetic as St Simeon Stylites and knows he's damned- which makes him rather attractive, don't you think?  He represents the Church.

What do you mean, you don't back either of them? That's not allowable. There are no alternatives.
