Product Description

The Hours (Full Screen Edition)

Special Features

It's hard to imagine anyone wanting more than what's on this lovely, single disc. There are four newly produced segments: a talk with composer Philip Glass, a featurette on the three main actresses, a must-see 10-minute feature on the writer of the novel (Michael Cunningham) and the screenplay (David Hare), and a crisp half-hour history of Virginia Wolfe with many anecdotes from various scholars. There are two commentaries. Highly recommended is Cunningham with director Stephen Daldry as they go through the movie with a good sense of appreciation for each person's craft. Cunningham is quite charming in revealing the story's origins while Daldry makes even the smallest task of filmmaking interesting. Daldry's so detailed he apologizes for such seemingly trivial bits as filming the opening sequence at a different time of year than it actually happened. The main three actresses speak separately on the other commentary track, and even though fans will enjoy their insights, the energy is very low; perhaps they should have recorded the track together. Streep's deep laughs at her little jokes are very smile-inducing. --Doug Thomas

I actually saw this movie before I read the book--something I rarely do. And for once, I'm glad it was in that order. The trio of actresses playing the roles did such a fabulous job, that I liked having pictures of them in my head as I read the book, and in retrospect, marveled at the film maker's ability to jump back and forth in time so seemlessly.
A beautiful, thought-provoking and creative story. Well done.

"The Hours" is a study (a brilliant one, let me add) of three women's lives (The writer Virginia Woolf, the urbane Vaughn, and the suburban wife Laura Brown)- their daily frustrations, their wants and needs that can't be earned no matter how one tries so hard. (Melo-dramatic, is it not? quite soap-operatic?)
Ed Harris's Richard is the ultimate modern-day tragic hero. Here he portrayed a character that is a source of pain, only pain, a Virginia Woolf re-incarnation of some sort. But Richard's pain, as the movie reminds us, is not one brought by his ... illness but by the past, brought by rejection and how this rejection shattered the life of a supposedly brilliant man. The actor's portrayal of a highly important character is sensitive enough to earn him an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor.
Kidman's portrayal of the writer Virginia Woolf really is inspiring and realistic. Her projection of the character's (Woolf) sense of loss and emotional emptiness is there, and, rejecting the comments of harsh critics, her adaptation of a brilliant but demented person truly is magnificent.
Streep also carried the film and has once again proven that she is one actress of versatility. Julianne Moore is brilliant as (1) a bored but determined young wife, and (2) as the estranged mother. But it was Toni Collette who almost stole the film with her incredible but brief powerful appearance. This is one actress that, given the right opportunity, will truly amaze the audience.
In a way, THE HOURS, is a meditation of the past, a rememory, a re-living. This is a movie of superior craftmanship, one that is delicate and innovative

"The characters of Kidman and Streep have near-perfect lives full of people who love them, plenty of money, nice place to live, etc. Yet both somehow find a way to spend most of their time totally unhappy, miserable, depressed, and suicical. Kidman sits around all day in a huge house with servants, next to a huge garden, has a husband who adores her and will do anything she wants, and she can basically do whatever she wants and write whatever she wants at her own pace. Yet all she does is mope around, act weird when a bird dies, come on to her sister, and obsess over nothing and ends up killing herself. "--- A reviewer on Amazon of "The Hours".
SOMEONE didn't do their homework. Does this reviewer realize that Virginia Woolf suffered from an acute mental illness that drove her to suicide? This person needs to research these subjects a bit before ranting about them.
" I was sort of glad at the end of the movie that Kidman ends it all, she was so unredeeming and irritating at the end of the movie."- Ibid
You mean, unredeemable aside from being one of the great novelists of the twentieth century? I found Kidman did an amazing job of portraying Virginia Woolf's more disturbed side... it's clear from the onset that she is NOT a fully functional woman (as anyone who has ever heard about Virginia Woolf would know that she was not), and that she has serious imbalance issues throughout the film. While she was at her most stable during the writing of "Mrs. Dalloway", it's quite clear that it just means that she wasn't suicidal-- her malady was such that it seemed to be almost permanently hanging over her head, her behaviour becoming so erratic at times that she was branded an "eccentric". In fact, in the novel "Mrs.
