A solitary middle-aged bachelor and a naïve Irish teenager transform one another's lives to arrive at a place of recognition, redemption and wisdom in ''Felicia's Journey'', writer/director Atom Egoyan's adaption of William Trevor's celebrated 1994 novel.
Seventeen and pregnant, Felicia (Elaine Cassidy) travels to England in search of her lover but is found instead by Joseph Ambrose Hilditch (Bob Hoskins -- ''Mermaids'', ''Hook'', ''Who Framed Roger Rabbit''), a helpful catering manager whose kindness masks a serial killer. Hilditch has murdered several young women, but he has no conscious awareness of the crimes: like Felicia, he doesn't see his true self.
Anchored by the stunning performances of Hoskins and Cassidy, ''Felicia's Journey'' is a story of innocence lost and regained: Felicia awakens to the world's dangers and duplicities; and Hilditch, who grew up lonely and unloved, comes to realise what was taken away from him, and what he himself has taken.
