Overview

When George, played with great morose by Bob Hoskins, is asked to drive and protect a prostitute as she visits her clients, he unexpectedly falls for her. Filmed with a tenacious style, the rain-drenched neon of the evening contrasts beautifully against the stark realism of the day with Neil Jordan beautifully imagining his own script to life, building up to an unforgettable finale.
