A unique and blazing talent, Bob Hoskins was one of the most versatile and consistently riveting actors Britain ever produced. “Five-foot-six cubic” in his own words, Hoskins combined a brawny physicality with a vast emotional range, leading to a series of indelible performances: as a beleaguered gangland boss with a volcanic temper in John Mackenzie’s THE LONG GOOD FRIDAY; a naive, lovelorn ex-con in Neil Jordan’s MONA LISA; an avuncular but mysterious stranger in Atom Egoyan’s FELICIA’S JOURNEY; and as the leader of a band of travelers in his own directorial debut, the fascinating, unfairly overlooked period piece THE RAGGEDY RAWNEY.
