Movie Info

Pregnant Felicia (Elaine Cassidy) has come to England to look for her boyfriend, who she knows works in a factory but not which one. There, she meets an older caterer, Joseph (Bob Hoskins). Joseph is obsessed with old tapes of a TV chef, who was seemingly his mother. However, he is a mysterious character who lies and steals from Felicia while putting on a friendly face.

Audience Reviews for Felicia's Journey

    Creepy and fascinating especially the Bob Hoskins character. He is a lonely man who is a professinal cook and a serial killer. There is also the Elaine Cassidy character who found out that she is pregnant and goes to Ireland to find her bf (who left to go find work) since he is the one responsible for getting her pregnant. Hilditch(Hoskins) and Felicia(Cassidy) meet unexpectedly and this is where Atom Egoyan goes into his fav filmmaking trademark. Exploring themes of isolated, alienated charcters dealing with loss, grief, guilt, despair and a non linear story arc. The last scene of the film felt a slight disappointing but I still felt this picture is p work from Atom Egoyan. After Egoyan's "Exotica", and "The Sweet Hereafter", "Felicia's Journey" imo is a near masterpiece.

    Ah yes. My good friend Atom Egoyan. He may ignore me in the streets but this was the period of time when he was coming up with some very rewarding films. No comment about the time before or time after. Where is Elaine Cassidy after this? She was great here as was Bob Hoskins playing counter to his usual role.

    Even with Bob Hoskins as a calculating psychopath Atom Egoyan manages to make this into a total snooze fest.
