Movie Info

We are introduced to Janice (Irish stage comedienne Eileen Walsh in her screen debut) at her ill-starred beginnings; her father dies of a heart attack during her birth, causing her mother to plunge into a post-natal, post-mortem agoraphobic depression that endures for 23 years. As Janice grows up on public assistance she makes it her goal in life to entertain her mother with outlandish and fanciful tales of the outside world. As an adult she studies medical journals to find a cure for her ouse bound mother's ills, evetually heading to London with minimal secretarial skills determined to earn the cash to pay for treatment. Still inhabiting an elaborate fantasy which now features her dazzling artistic and professinal achievements, Janice concocts an impressive resume and plunges into the work force, wih disastrous results. In exchange for her promise to be as normal as possible, a childhood friend gets Janice a job in the typing pool of a car manufacturing firm. Struggling to fit in she eventually even wins over the glam but nasty man trap - head of the secretarial pool (Patsy Kensit). As the company gears up for the launch of a new model, Janice finds what she thinks is love with the mail room boy Sean (Rhys Ifans of "Notting Hill") but in fact has becomes a pawn in an idustrial espionage scheme that could ruin the company. Can little Janice cure her mother, save the sompany and find true love in the bargain? -- © Empire Pictures
