directed the 1999 film-Felicia's journey
Like other Egoyan films, the story is told out of sequence, with flashbacks and dreams woven into the narrative.
It also touches on themes he addresses in other films:
fear, regret,dependence on and/or rejection of family.
Egoyan scares you, breaks your heart, then picks you up, brushes you off and says: "It's ok, It's just a scrape" and sends you on your way.
Many reviewers use the word haunting to describe his films. That makes it sound like they are all frightening.
A better description might be resonant, since his films stay with you and bounce off your thoughts and dreams.
