How’s this for a powerhouse combo? Gwyneth Paltrow, Nicole Kidman, and Meryl Streep May star together in a new film, but without ever sharing a scene. The plot of The Hours revolves around three female characters in different story lines and different time periods in the 20th century, related only by a parallel in their personal lives: Virginia Woolf’s novel Mrs. Dalloway. The first woman is Woolf herself, who is working on the novel in 1923 as she recovers from depression. Second is an unhappily married ’40s era Los Angeles housewife who reads Woolf’s novel in 1949 as she awaits the birth of her first child; third is a contemporary woman in New York planning what will be a farewell party for her AIDS-stricken former lover, who nicknamed her Mrs. Dalloway.
