Audience Reviews for Mrs. Dalloway


What did you expect from me? You know how much I love period pieces especially one that are particularly dull. Are reviewers swayed by the existence of corsets to continually rave about these pieces? Part of me thinks that is the case.

This movie is another from the 1997 Toronto International Film Festival. Its not a bad film, even though I only give it 2 1/2 stars, its just not a good movie for me. I am sure any women over 50 might enjoy this as she looks back at her life and wonders about the decisions she made. That's what the film is about, women just coming out of hospital is looking back at her life and wondering. My answer is just be happy with what you have, no matter how bad it is, be happy, if you went the other way you might have it worst. Its a British Film (BBC) its slow and dry but then again one might find it enjoyable if they read Virginia Wolff Novels as I believe its based on one of her books. 2 1/2 stars.
