The film follows a London east side gangster Harold Shand, who controls the city docks, and is planning a big real estate deal, financed by money from the American mob. However, just as the American mafia’s representatives are about to arrive Shand finds his operation under attack and can’t understand who wants to destroy him. Impressively directed The Long Good Friday is a gripping drama featuring terrific performances from Bob Hoskins and Helen Mirren.
