The Hours (2002) short review

One of those movies that tries WAY too hard to be an Oscar winner.  Nicole Kidman looks great as Virginia Woolf in the 1910s, although all of her speeches seem created with an Oscar clip in mind.  The real stealers of the show are Julianne Moore and Toni Collette in the 1950s scenes.  Great costumes, although pretty one note.
