The Hours, Paperback
4 out of 5 (1 rating)


In Richmond, England in 1923, Virginia Woolf is setting out to write the first words of her new book.

In Los Angeles in 1951, a housewife, Laura Brown, is contemplating suicide. And in present-day New York, a hostess, Clarissa Vaughan, is planning a party for her friends.

In extraordinary and ingenious ways, the film shows how a single day - and the novel Mrs Dalloway - inextricably link the lives of three very different women.

Review by

An enjoyable way to refresh my memory of David Hare's masterly adaptation of Michael Cunningham's novel for the screen.Stephen Daldrey's vision though makes viewing the film a far richer experience.
