The Long Good Friday follows entrepreneurial mob boss Harold Shand (Academy Award-nominee Bob Hoskins, Mona Lisa), who runs an underworld empire but his dreams are much bigger. He and his sophisticated wife (Oscar-winner Helen Mirren, The Queen) aspire to partner with American mobsters to turn the barren docklands of London into a development for the upcoming Olympics.
