MONA LISA
1986, HandMade Films, 104 min, UK, Dir: Neil Jordan

This superb British crime drama brought Bob Hoskins his sole Oscar nomination (along with a raft of acting awards for this performance). He stars as George, recently released from prison, who is hired by his former boss (Michael Caine) to chauffeur high-class call girl Simone (Cathy Tyson) to her London clients. Despite differing backgrounds, George and Simone develop a friendship, and he is all too eager to help when she tells him about another prostitute in trouble. Costarring Robbie Coltrane.
