“The Hours” Turns 20 In 2022

2022 marks the 20th anniversary of The Hours, and we think it’s time for a rewatch. This seminal drama starring Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore, and Meryl Streep is still as powerful today as it was when it first came out. It tells the story of three women living in different eras who are all struggling with different aspects of their lives. It’s an important film that should be revisited often. The Hours is a film that is timeless in its themes and execution. The acting is top-notch, and the story is one that will stay with you long after the credits have rolled. Reviews of the movie during its premiere have been generous. Queerty wrote about the movie:

“Loaded with rich dialogue, magnificent performances, and a delicate score by Philip Glass, The Hours reminds us how movies can touch and reflect our lives. For the characters that embrace love and truth, life offers joy and hope.” Daniel Mendelsohn of The New York Review of Books noted: “The Hours is a serious and moving film, one that achieves many of its goals; among other things, it will presumably have many, many more people reading Mrs. Dalloway than Woolf could ever have dreamed of.” If you haven’t seen it, we highly recommend you do so. And if you have seen it, we think it’s time for a rewatch. On its 20th anniversary, The Hours is a film that should not be missed. Here are some of the reasons why The Hours should be celebrated on its 20th anniversary in 2022:

It has a unique story

The Hours has a unique and genuine story that is not often seen in films. The film tells the story of three women who are living in different eras and are all struggling with different aspects of their lives. What makes the movie unique in its storytelling is that it covers a lot of ground in a short amount of time. The film is able to touch on many different topics and themes in a way that is both effective and meaningful.

It has fantastic acting

The acting in The Hours is some of the best you will ever see in any film in the last 20 years. Nicole Kidman, Julianne Moore, and Meryl Streep give career-defining performances in this film. What’s most exceptional about the acting of this cast is that they are all able to convey so much emotion in their performances. The acting in The Hours is some of the best you will ever see, and it’s one of the many reasons why the film should be rewatched on its 20th anniversary. Perhaps what makes the acting so genuine in the movie is because of how the cast has been able to relate the movie to their own personal lives. In an interview with Oprah, Meryl Streep hinted at it:

“My mother died a year ago, and I’ve just now been able to bring myself to sort through her things. I discovered a photo I’d never seen—a picture of my grandmother with her three sisters and mother. All the women were wearing these high lace collars in 1903, yet looking at my grandmother was like looking into the face of my own child. So I’m always interested in lifting humanity from the dead pages of history. For instance, when we see a photograph of Virginia Woolf, her soul seems so available on her face, but there were many secrets, too. What great literature does is bring that humanity up until it beats in your own breast, and we feel what Virginia Woolf felt. For me, this film was a telescoping of time and emotion and how connected we are—deep down, we’re all very similar.”

Nicole Kidman shines in this movie

Nicole Kidman gives one of the best performances of her career in The Hours. She is absolutely stunning in this film, and she should be celebrated for her work. What makes Kidman’s performance amazing in this movie is the amount of emotion she is able to convey with her intense performance. She gives a raw and honest performance that is truly moving. In an interview with the Los Angeles Times, she provides a hint on her acting process, which might shed light on why her award-winning performance in The Hours was so powerful: “You can’t delineate exactly when it happens,” Kidman said. “All you know is: Everything starts to flow, and suddenly you’re walking differently, you’re talking differently, you’re thinking differently, your whole demeanor is in relation to what you’re shooting a lot of the time, mood-wise even.”

It’s Stephen Daldry’s best work

The Hours is director Stephen Daldry’s best work. He does an excellent job of telling the story of three different women in three different eras. The film is beautifully shot and directed, and it’s one of the many reasons why The Hours should be celebrated on its 20th anniversary.

The visuals of the film are particularly reflected in the scenes set in Virginia Woolf’s house. The film does an excellent job of featuring every scene as if it were a painting.

It has a powerful message

The Hours has a powerful message that is still relevant today. It’s an important film that should be revisited often. Its message of hope and resilience is one that is needed now more than ever. The movie conveys its message in a way that is both powerful and moving.
