The Hours

Nicole Kidman delivers an Oscar-winning performance as author Virginia Woolf in this poignant tale that focuses on three women, living in different times but bound by a common thread. In 1929, Woolf fights a losing battle with mental illness as she begins to write her novel "Mrs. Dalloway." Twenty-two years later, a suburban housewife (Julianne Moore) finds solace in the book while struggling with her dreary life. And a present-day literary editor (Meryl Streep) represents a modern Clarissa Dalloway who faces mortality as she plans a party for her friend, a prominent writer dying of AIDS. With Ed Harris, Claire Danes, Jeff Daniels and John C Reilly.
