Felicia's Journey Reviews
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.
(1999) Felicia's Journey
Bob Hoskins plays a peculiar chef who has a dark pass, and comes across a hitch hiker travelling to the UK from somewhere in Ireland, Felicia played by Elaine Cassidy asking around for her brother's business or place of work which is some sort of a lawn mower company instead of checking the yellow pages or asking some officer on the beat! And as the film progresses each of the two main characters has a new revealation who eventually coincide with one another with of course the Bob Hoskins character as the more sinister one!
The film dwells too much on it's two main characters of Joe and Felicia and it doesn't really go anywhere leaving more questions than answers! Story taken from the William Trevor novel!

The last scene of the film felt a bit disappointing with the Jamacian woman preching to Hilditch about Jesus just when he is about to burry Felicia by the front lawn. The emotion left from inside my body really quick but Egoyan's film never bores. After Egoyan's Exotica, and The Sweet Hereafter Felicia's Journey sadly doesn't get the masterpiece ranking that it deserves.
