Brightburn

Brightburn is a 2019 USA Sci-Fi horror thriller by David Yarovesky.

Cut Small 15 Small UK: Passed 15 for strong gory injury detail, violence, language after BBFC advised pre-cuts ( 90:12s ) :
  • 2019 cinema release
The BBFC commented:
  • This film was originally seen for advice at which stage the company was informed it was likely to be classified 18 uncut but that their preferred 15 classification could be achieved by making reductions to two scenes featuring both strong gory images and a dwelling on the infliction of pain and injury. When the film was submitted for formal classification these scenes had been acceptably reduced.

In this unique take on the infamous Manson murders we follow two generations of chilling real life events which occur at 10050 Cielo Drive, one of America's most notorious addresses. In 1969, we witness the violent exploits of homicidal cult The Manson Family which culminate in the brutal murder of actress Sharon Tate and several of her friends at Cielo Drive. In 1992, rock singer Margot Lavigne moves into the house to record a new album. But life soon becomes a hellish nightmare as supernatural forces haunt Margot and her band mates with sheer, unbridled evil. As Margot learns more about the events of 1969, and begins to understand the true nature of The Manson Family, she realizes she must find a way to lay the ghosts of the past to rest - or become another tragic footnote in the history of The House on Cielo Drive.

Summary Notes

Fifteen-year-old Sarah Taylor exists in the eye of the storm. The sole caretaker of her family, including precocious twin siblings and a manic-depressive mother who spends most of her time in bed, Sarah runs from school to home to work each and every day. Yet, despite her Herculean efforts to put food on the table and keep the electricity on, she is still forced to engage with more dehumanizing ways to make a few extra bucks-so it's no wonder that her back is up among her peers at school. Jellyfish tells the story of Sarah's discovery of an unexpected outlet for her frustration and quick-tempered wit: stand-up comedy. First-time feature film director James Gardner paints a dark and hard-edged picture of life in this grey seaside British town, and, in newcomer Liv Hill, he uncovers a revelatory talent. Thanks to her fiercely evocative and vulnerable depiction of Sarah, Hill gives the audience truly remarkable insight into a young woman living a life far beyond her years.
