The tension is so great that a reader barely breathes. Mr. Hilditch, unassuming, unremarkable, and Felicia, unsuspecting, unworldly, cross paths in that random way that is the beginning of so many incidents in life. The stately pace, never a rush, is the linchpin of the story, for Trevor and Hilditch both. Egoyan's adaptation is not a slavish one, but it opts for a bit more spectacle than the novel employs, and the endings are not identical.
