the hoursBy homerj from EAST SUSSEX , 20 Oct 2003
[Highly rated reviewer]I was very unsure about this film after I had familiarised myself by watching the trailer, and was quite willing to return the film without watching it.
However, nothing on telly, I decided to give it a go on a cold, damp sunday afternoon.
What a delightful, but sombre, way to pass a couple of hours. Superb performances by Ms Moore, Streep and Kidman. It is a joy to watch all three of them in action.
There is no violence, swearing or gratuitous sex (i am no prude, i can appreciate all three in the right context), which made this film a perfect diversion from the outside world.
If in doubt, keep this film at the bottom of your rental queue and forget about it. It may turn up and surprise you - it did me, and what a pleasant surprise I nearly missed.

Light at the end of the tunnelBy a customer , 03 Aug 2013I thought I would enjoy this film but it left me with the feeling that we are all responsible for own decisions that can influence and affect us in the future. I knew the story about Virginia Wolf but didn't expect the film to be so dark. Very well acted, but gave me the blues.
A modern classicBy seonaruth (6 reviews) , 04 Jun 2013Characters of substance and a 'realness' relating to those flaws we may not necessarily realise in ourselves - in how others affect our lives. A great drama, I can't believe it's taken me this many years to finally see it.
Power of DestinyBy bucketsbentley (4 reviews) , 15 Dec 2012sorrowful, depressive yet gives you hope in the power of making your own destiny. Not for those who don't want to look inward
An absolute featBy a customer , 15 Aug 2012This film is very touching and I would call it a great feat in painting the picture of depression. The narrative is absolutely ingenious and does not let down the novel on which it is based.
The performances throughout the film were amazing; the leading ladies gave especially outstanding performances. The great depth of the film is owed to the performances as much as, if not more than, the narrative.
The HoursBy a customer , 29 Jul 2012Really good idea and a good ending but didn't quite get where the film was going half the time. Worth the watch though.
