Drama - This drama has almost exclusively adult appeal and is clearly aimed toward women though men can enjoy as well. The mature subject matter makes the film inappropriate for young children though it is fine for the teenage set.

Entertainment Weekly  Full Review
Good "And still I don't know what this filmed Hour
s means to say -- about sexuality or children or sadness or the womanly urge to gather people together, or about AIDS, either. More dismaying still, I begin to think that it doesn't have much to say at all.''

James Berardinelli, Internet Critic  Full Review
Good "Paramount's decision to release The Hours at the end of the year is a transparent grab for Oscar nominations. And, while I couldn't argue with recognition for Kidman, Moore, and/or Streep, this isn't the kind of film that's going to stir a lot of widespread enthusiasm. The film's emotional frigidity is offset by its literate and artistic qualities. ''

Roger Ebert  Full Review
Very Good "It's more like a meditation on separate episodes linked by a certain sensibility--that of Woolf, a great novelist who wrote a little book titled A Room of One's Own that in some ways initiated modern feminism.''

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
Three eras, three stories, and three women coalesce into a continuum that flows through the heart of "The Hours." Each woman is joined to the other like links in a chain, unaware that the power of a single great work of literature is irrevocably altering their lives. First there is Virginia Woolf, in a suburb of London in the early 1920s, battling insanity as she begins to write her first great novel, Mrs. Dalloway. Over two decades later, Laura Brown is a wife and mother in Los Angeles at the end of World War II. who is reading Mrs. Dalloway and finding it so revelatory that she begins to consider making a devastating change in her life. And then, in contemporary New York City, there is Clarissa Vaughan, a modern version of Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway, in love with her friend Richard, a brilliant poet dying of AIDS. Their stories intertwine and finally come together in a surprising and transcendent moment of shared recognition.
