Bob Hoskins - in the once-in-a-lifetime role that earned him an Oscar® nomination and won him Cannes Film Festival and British Academy Awards for Best Actor - stars as George, a brutish mob soldier in the London underworld who has just been released from prison. Anxious for work, he's given the job of chauffeuring elegant prostitute Simone (Cathy Tyson, in her stunning film debut) by gangster boss Mortwell (an unforgettable performance by Michael Caine). What follows is the film CBS Morning News calls "vivid and astonishing," a remarkable combination of uncommon love story and shocking thriller that remains one of the most startling dramas of the decade.
Robbie Coltrane (Ocean's Twelve), Clarke Peters (The Wire) and Sammi David (Homefront) co-star in this internationally acclaimed smash directed and co-written by Neil Jordan that was nominated for 6 British Academy Awards, including Best Actor, Best Actress, best Direction and Best Film.
