Miami Beach Cinematheque. August 21st, 2008. 8:30 p.m. Felicia’s Journey (Canada / 1999), featuring Bob Hoskins, Elaine Cassidy and Arsinée Khanjian, will be screened at Miami Beach Cinematheque on August 21st, 2008 at 8:30 p.m.
In the brilliantly realized surreal thriller, adapted from William Trevor's popular novel, Felicia (Elaine Cassidy), a pregnant Irish girl searching for her boyfriend in the English midlands, is befriended by Joseph Hilditch (Bob Hoskins), a catering manager who also happens to be a serial killer.
Atom Egoyan, Canada's most gifted filmmaker, elevates this cat-and-mouse game into a film that transcends genre by entering the characters' consciousness and implying a world of half-discernible connections in which the weather, the landscape and the chance encounters of strangers suggest the sense of a grand design.
