The Hours Movie will keep you on the Edge of your seat for the whole movie! This movie in-Capsules You-Heart,Body and your whole Soul!! If you suffer or know anyone who suffers with Depression or any other Mental Health illness than you will totally relate to this movie in it's entiredly!! I felt I was validated in regards to my Depression!! I was not alone!! I can endure and come out Alive-Physically and especially Mentally!! The movie was very Sad but with a very Honest Look into how different people Deal with Depression and the very different choices they make! We all Learn to Love,Lose, to over come the Pain and come out on top in the end admidst the Darkness :)

Quite a film.

The screen play (writing) follows the original novel of the same name almost verbatim. Acting is superb.

Though it exposes the dark(er) side of life for most part, it is nevertheless quite gripping.

One of the best movies ever. Nicole Kidman as Virginia Woolf is excellent. Great adaptation of a great novel.

A friend recommended this movie, but I found it quite depressing (so much talk/thoughts about suicide, and one suicide right at the start). Great actors though, just be aware that the mood is dark.

A totally different kind of story and film, it does't fit into any particular genre. Superb acting.

"To look life in the face, always, to look life in the face and to know it for what it is. At last to know it, to love it for what it is, and then, to put it away. Leonard, always the years between us, always the years. Always the love. Always the hours."
