    If I didn't spend ‘The Hours' distracted more by the privilege of these women rather than learning the backbone of their suffering, it would've gone deeper. I feel Stephen Daldry's adaptation accidentally emphasizes what it's trying to denounce. There's no shortage of prolonged shots of pensive expressions adorning morose faces though. That combined with Philip Glass's heavy-handed (though tantalizing) score backs me into a corner with a film assuming my empathy for these characters rather than truly earning it.

    Technically sound performances by the three leads are destroyed by a dullness to their tales. The Hours leaves you wanting to use these actresses more efficiently.

    Great cinematography with even greater performances all around. The Hours is solid from beginning to end with a unique premise and a topic that is rarely absorbed. I really appreciated this film.

    Great actings in a sentimental, but nice picture.
