The Hours (2002)
Always
The time to hide is over. The time to regret is gone. The time to live is now.



Nicole plays Virginia Woolf

The Hours tells the story of one day in the life of three women, all linked by Virginia Woolf's novel 'Mrs Dalloway'. Laura Brown is a housewife living in the 1950's, who is in the middle of reading 'Mrs Dalloway'; Clarissa Vaughn is a modern-day (2001) Mrs Dalloway, who is throwing a party for her friend dying of Aids; and Virginia Woolf (in 1923), who is just starting to write her latest book - Mrs Dalloway.

Trivia
[1] Nicole (who is left-handed) learned to write right-handed for this role.
[2] Nicole reportedly lived in an isolated cottage during the filming to get herself into the role better.
[3] Continuity Error - The whole scene in the train station between Virginia and Leonard takes between 5 to 10 minutes, but the clock behind Leonard only moves two minutes.
[4] The film was disqualified by the Academy for the Best Makeup Oscar because digital touch-ups were done on close-ups of Nicole Kidman to make the nose seem seamless.
[5] "The Hours" was the original working title of Virginia Woolf's "Mrs. Dalloway".
[6] In the beginning of the movie, every house is seen to be having flowers. Every house has a different color of flowers: red, yellow and blue - Virginia Woolf's trademark.
[7] Nicole wore a false nose to make herself look like Virginia Woolf
