The Hours

This was a very deep and moving movie with many layers. It didn't actually make that much sense to me until we approached the end and all the strands were tied together a lot tighter. I hadn't read anything by Virginia Woolf so I had no preconceived ideas about how her writing should be set to screen, or even what she wrote about. I will be looking up some of her books now. The message that everyone has a choice about their lives and how they live them, struck home rather strongly, as this is what I fight with my family about all of the time. The music by Philip Glass pulled the movie along and added so much to the already excellent performances by the three main actresses. Definately a movie and soundtrack that I will be buying.
