The Hours is a dour and morose film that, at its best, provides a heartbreaking portrayal of characters coping with personal tragedy and, at its worst, is a weepy and overdone art film. Thankfully, the majority of the film lives up to the former. Ed Harris is a real standout here.

I watched this movie while on my journey through films about writers... what a gigantic disappointment. The screenplay was unnatural and better suited for the stage. It actually ended up hurting the performances. Though there was an attempt to touch on heart-wrenching topics, it came across as overkill.. And I have to say, this interpretation of Virginia Woolf was quite weak and almost cartoonish. Most of the story was sprinkled with desperate reaches to keep audiences interested. What a drag.

It's score brings out more emotion of each frame and camera work was detailed. It's pacing however and back and forth direction was not as pleasant an experience. It's most glaring strength were the three leads, especially Kidman who deservedly won an Academy Award. Screenplay …
