Movie Info

In this portrait of parental sacrifice and the love of a father for his son, former wrestler Kakhi (played by real-life Olympic champion Levan Tediashvili) embarks on a journey from his home in the Republic of Georgia to visit his son Soso (Giorgi Tabidze) in the Russian-speaking neighborhood of Brighton Beach, Brooklyn. There he finds him living in a shabby boarding house populated by a colorful group of fellow Georgian immigrants. Soso is not studying medicine, as Kakhi believed, but is working for a moving company and has accrued a $14,000 gambling debt to a local Russian mob boss. Kakhi sets his mind to helping his hapless son out of his debt, leading to situations as often comic as they are dire.

Critic Reviews for Brighton 4th

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (5)

A tragicomedy that sneaks up on you stealthily before flooring you with an emotional sucker punch in the final reel.

January 28, 2022 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…

The film unfolds at a pace that is unhurried yet self-assured, submerged in the rhythms that govern its characters' lives.

The melancholy-infused narrative neatly balances rueful humor with genuine sweetness.

Top Critic

Every frame is evocatively shot (Phedon Papamichael), perfectly edited (Sasha Frumin, Davit Kiknadze, Elene Asatiani) and directed by Levan Koguashvili.

June 23, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

Koguashvili deftly blends tones in his vividly realised snapshots of Georgian manhood, both in Tbilisi, where the film starts, then in the tight-knit community of Georgian migrants in Brooklyn.

June 16, 2021 | Full Review…

Layered with rich cultural texture beneath its familiar setup, this gritty Georgian drama finds a fresh perspective on the immigrant experience and the elusiveness of the American Dream.
