The Hours spans three time periods from the 20th century, visiting one woman from each period during a highly significant day in their life. An Oscar-winning Nicole Kidman is virtually unrecognisable as the brilliant but unbalanced writer Virginia Woolf. As she writes her novel ‘Mrs Dalloway’, she struggles against mental illness and her husband's well intended efforts to protect her from herself. Julianne Moore plays Laura Brown, a housewife pregnant with her second child in the 1950's.
Reading Woolf's ‘Mrs. Dalloway’ her inner fury at the bonds of marriage and motherhood begins to boil over. Finally, Meryl Streep plays Clarissa Vaughan, a modern day editor, who rushes around New York, organising a party for her ex lover, a talented poet struck down by Aids, who has nicknamed her “Mrs. Dalloway”. How do these lives interrelate? As this touching and poignant story unfolds, profound links and parallels become apparent…
