Based on Michael Cunningham's Pulitzer Prize-winning book, David Hare's screenplay is published to coincide with the Paramount Pictures and Miramax Films release starring Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Nicole Kidman, Ed Harris, Toni Collette, Claire Danes, Jeff Daniels, Stephen Dillane, Allison Janney, John C. Reilly, and Miranda Richardson.
The Hours is the story of three young women searching for more potent, meaningful lives. Each exists at a different time and place; all are linked by their yearnings and their fears. Virginia Woolf (Nicole Kidman), in a suburb of London in the early 1920s, is battling insanity as she begins to write her first great novel, Mrs. Dalloway. Laura Brown (Julianne Moore), in Los Angeles at the end of World War II, is reading Mrs. Dalloway, and finding it so revelatory she begins to consider making a devastating change in her life as a wife and mother. Clarissa Vaughan (Meryl Streep), in New York City today is a contemporary version of Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway, and is in love with her friend Richard (Ed Harris), a brilliant poet dying of AIDS. Their stories intertwine and ultimately come together in a surprising, transcendent moment of shared recognition.

David Hare is one of Britain's most internationally performed playwrights. Nine of his plays have been presented on Broadway, including Plenty, Skylight, The Blue Room, Amy's View, and Via Dolorosa, in which he also performed. He is currently writing the film of Jonathan Franzen's The Corrections, and his new play The Breath of Life, with Maggie Smith and Judi Dench, opens in London in October 2002.Review:
"The overall impression is that of a delicate, triumphant glance, an acknowledgement of Woolf that takes her into Cunningham's own territory, a place of late-century danger but also of treasurable hours."--Michael Wood, "The New York Times Book Review"
"An exquisitely written, kaleidoscopic work that anchors a floating postmodern world on pre-modern caissons of love, grief and transcendent longing."--Richard Eder, " Los Angeles Times Book Review"
"[Cunningham] has deftly created something original, a trio of richly interwoven tales that alternate with one another chapter by chapter, each of them entering the thoughts of a character as she moves through the small details of a day . . . Cunningham's emulation of such a revered writer as Woolf is courageous, and this is his most mature and masterful work."--Jameson Currier, "The Washington Post Book World"
"The triumph of "The Hours" is that it somehow manages to be both artful and sincere, striking nary a false note . . . And the triumph of the book is no less the triumph of its author. Just when it seemed that it was no longer permissible to pay respect to the literature of the past, Cunningham has done so with an undeniable skill and depth of feeling."--Justin Cronin, "Philadelphia Inquirer"
"Rich and beautifully nuanced scenes follow one upon the other . . . [a] gargantuan accomplishment."--"Publishers Weekly" (starred, boxed review)
