George, a tough but vulnerable ex-con, is fresh out of prison, on the streets looking for a job - any job. He makes contact with his former underworld bosses, but after seven years inside he no longer has any status in the criminal ratings. He soon finds himself working for a beautiful high-class hooker, Simone, and though resentful of his job and increasingly disenchanted with organized vice, he finds he is becoming infatuated with her. Neil Jordan's Mona Lisa reads like Hemingway out of Chandler, sensual and street-gritty.
