Directed by
Stephen Daldry

Complex, Oscar-nominated drama based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Michael Cunningham, interweaving the stories of three women from different generations.

In the early part of the twentieth century, Virginia Woolf (Nicole Kidman) struggles to complete her novel Mrs Dalloway, which profoundly affects a 1950s housewife Laura Brown (Julianne Moore) and a modern-day woman Clarissa Vaughn (Meryl Streep), who appears to be living out its plotline.

Spanning three different eras, the film focuses in the parallel lives of three women who are joined in their depression and search for love. Awe-inspiring performances from all three award-winning actresses.
