    The Hours

    What did anyone think of The Hours? I generally liked it but I was a tad confused about the part where Laura Brown played by Julianne Moore is lying on the bed and sea water is coming in around the bed.

    Islands are just the bit you can see above the water. All land is connected if you move the water, and so are we.

    It sounds like you guys have never ever heard of The Hours. It was quite controversial when it came out . I first saw it when traveling on a third world airline called Guruda back to the UK. Some people did not ever recognize Nicole Kidman. Anyway it has three different story lines that have similarities to each other and there is sometimes duplication of dialogue.

    I don't think I have watched the film to be honest. I wouldn't recognise Nicole Kidman if she presented the 6 O'clock news either.

    I think I have worked out. Laura Brown is projecting herself on to the character of Mrs Dalloway from the novel of the same name and Mrs Dalloway is contemplating suicide. The water coming around the bed and drowning Laura Brown is happening i her imagination.
