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. Lensed by Oscar®-nominated cinematographer Phedon Papamichael (The Trial of the Chicago 7, Nebraska), Levan Koguashvili BRIGHTON 4TH won three major awards at the Tribeca Film Festival – Best International Film, Best Actor, and Best Screenplay – and is Georgia’s official submission to the 94th Academy Awards®.

Reviews

“A gentle, naturalistic story of parental devotion and sacrifice… balances rueful humor with genuine sweetness.”


“Touchingly absurd and absurdly touching… A slow-burn family drama infused with welcome doses of deadpan dark humor.”


“If you want a potential foreign language contender, Brighton 4th could be it.”


“A near-perfect, semi-comic portrait of the low-rent Georgian enclave in Brighton Beach."


“A touching and surprising exploration of masculinity that features a stunning central performance from former Olympic wrestling champion Levan Tediashvili.”


"Koguashvili deftly blends tones in his vividly realised snapshots of Georgian manhood."


"A compelling portrait of the Eastern European community that exists in Brighton, [featuring] a great performance by Tediashvili, in his first film role."
