The Long Good Friday is heralded as one of the best British gangster films of all time, starring Bob Hoskins in his career-making role as London crime boss Harold Shand and Helen Mirren as his classy moll Victoria.
Harold is enjoying the height of his power, and he is on the verge of a deal that which would make his current ‘arrangements’ small fry. But stronger forces than even he can control have moved in and taken over. Climaxing in one long bloody day of terror, on Good Friday, he is to see his empire begin to crack and crumble.
