Art and Film Historian Jill Kiefer will introduce each movie, and lead a discussion that will separate fact from fiction following each film.
The Hours (2002)
This film spans multiple timelines and geographies to describe how the novel, Mrs. Dalloway, affects three generations of women, all of whom, in one way or another, have had to deal with suicide in their lives. With the exception of the opening and final scenes, the action takes place within the span of a single day, in three different years, and alternates between them throughout the film. Nicole Kidman (as Virginia Woolf) delivers one of the greatest performances ever. Stars Nicole Kidman, Meryl Streep, Julianne Moore, Claire Danes, and Ed Harris. Directed by Stephen Daldry.
