Hawks (1988)

Hawks is a 1988 British comedy film about two terminally ill patients: an English lawyer named Bancroft (Timothy Dalton) and a young American football player (Anthony Edwards), who decide to sneak out of their hospital rooms and live life to its fullest for whatever time they have left. Their goal: to reach a famous brothel in Amsterdam. Along the way, thy encounter various characters including a pair of misfit British women (played by Camille Coduri and Janet McTeer).

The film intentionally stays away from giving any specific details regarding the two men's illness, though it is presumed they have some form of cancer. It was filmed on location in London's Charing Cross Hospital and in the Netherlands.

The film was based on a short story written by Barry Gibb of the Bee Gees and David English, and the screenplay was written by Roy Clarke. The musical score was composed by Gibb.

The film is often regarded as the most overlooked and underrated in Timothy Dalton's career.
