Watch Mrs. Dalloway
- 1 hr 37 min
Virginia Woolf’s novel of interior life is beautifully realized in this adaptation. The story takes place in twenty-four hours as Clarissa Dalloway, a middle-aged wife, plans a party. During her preparations, she reflects on her past and the choices she made. She also encounters a shell-shocked veteran of World War I whose tragic life parallels and intersects with hers in an unexpected way. Woolf’s stream-of-consciousness literary technique is achieved through voice-over narration and the use of flashbacks. The viewer sees Mrs. Dalloway’s physical actions, but hears her real reflections on life, love and consequences.
