The Hours Movie Synopsis
Three women, each living in a different time and place, are all linked by their yearnings and their fears as they search for more potent, meaningful
Virginia Woolf (Kidman), in a suburb of London in the early 1920s, is battling insanity as she begins to write her first great novel, Mrs. Dalloway.
Laura Brown (Moore), a wife and mother in Los Angeles at the end of World War II, is reading Mrs. Dalloway, and finding it so revelatory
that she begins to consider making a devasting change in her life.
Clarissa Vaughan (Streep), a contemporary version of Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway, lives in New York City today, and is in love with her friend Richard (Harris), a brilliant poet who is dying of AIDS.
Their stories intertwine, and finally come together in a surprising, transcendent moment of shared recognition.
The Hours is an awesome movie!!! I loved it!!! ps- I love your comment Leanne!!! julio
I loved the novel and the movie followed the novel very closely. The performances by Kidman, Moore and Streep were excellent. I didn`t think Kidman could truly act until I saw this film. Very moving story lines from three eras left the theater silent and still at the movies end. Excellent, especially if you`ve studied any of Wolfe`s writing.
