    Atom Egoyan's Felicia's Journey could suffer from my saying too much about it, so beware of spoilers. Based on William Trevor's novel, it follows two characters (and you indeed have to follow along, because of Egoyan's trademark achronology) - Felicia (Elaine Cassidy), a young Irish girl just arrived in England looking for her estranged boyfriend; and Hilditch (Bob Hoskins), a secretive caterer obsessed with a 1950s TV chef. Both characters seem from an earlier time. Felicia has an old country, almost 19th century sensibility, while Hilditch is strictly 50s. Their paths cross, and they might help each other out. Spoiler: The story takes a left turn and becomes a vicious, uncomfortable thriller. Egoyan's great strength as a story teller is how he reveals his characters' secrets, and there are plenty here. Every shot tells a psychological story. 3 years 4 months ago

    How did I miss checking this? I saw it long before I joined icm. Bob Hoskins is terrific. Atom Egoyan makes intricate, morally complex movies. 4 years 1 month ago
