And that's a very young Pierce Brosnan in the front seat. Love this movie--a forgotten gem!

Loved it. It was the first time I remember seeing Bob Hoskins. PENNIES FROM HEAVEN was earlier but I think I saw this first.

I remember exactly who recommended it to me (Carol Brener at Murder Ink).

One of the dramatic and haunting scenes from this great film.

Great movie and very prescient abotu the way Thatcher was going to redevelop the UK's business world (as well as Docklands) - and I'd forgotten about Brosnan's dialogue-free supporting role!

Patti - Oh, I have to say I've not seen this one. Looks as though I should though...

I saw this for the first time only a few years ago. I've always been a Hoskins fan, and this might be his best work. Would any director trust his actors enough today to allow a scene like this to play out, to give Hoskins the time to let his emotions evolve. In the context of the movie, Brosnan's smug look speaks volumes, too.

Nope. And that scenes just makes the movie. He is such a brilliant actor and I don't think we've seen him nearly enough.
