Virginia Woolf (Nicole Kidman), in a suburb of London in the early 1920s, is battling insanity as she begins to write her first great novel, Mrs. Dalloway. A wife and mother in post-World War II Los Angeles, Laura Brown (Julianne Moore), is reading Mrs. Dalloway and finding it so revelatory that she begins to consider making a devastating change in her life. Clarissa Vaughan (Meryl Streep), a present-day version of Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway, lives in New York city and is in love with a friend, who is dying of AIDS.

Industry Reviews

"The film actually improves on Cunningham's novel, thanks to gorgeous cinematography, a deft script by playwright David Hare... a mournful, melodious but never intrusive score by Philip Glass and a superb cast." - Connie Ogle, Miami Herald

"A compelling, moving film that respects its audience and its source material." - Eric Harrison, Houston Chronicle

"It's a must-see. Mainstream epics routinely privilege the father-son bond... In The Hours, patriarchs barely figure, and the only phallic weapon on display is Virginia's pen." - Charlotte O'Sullivan, Independent

"An elegant movie-triptych - its constituent, handsomely mounted panels are inhabited by three earnest, meticulous performances." - Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
