George (Bob Hoskins) newly out after a stint in prison, agrees to chauffeur Simone (Cathy Tyson) “a tall, black, tart”. At first they hate each other, but things can change. So when Simone asks George to find a friend of hers that she lost contact with, he dives into the sordid, underbelly of the sex/prostitution underworld. This film was an unexpected treat, knowing next to nothing about it, save for the fact that I admire Bob Hoskins, Micheal Caine, and Robbie Coltrane all. Cathy Tyson was merely ok in the film & sadly Coltrane is pretty much wasted as Thomas. But both Hoskins and Caine are superb. Sadly, in America at least, Bob Hoskins is known to the non-cinema masses as merely Eddie from “What ever happened to Roger Rabbit?” & “That guy from Hook”. This is a shame, as he’s an amazing actorMy Grade: AWhere i saw it: Sundance channel
