Great adaptation, beautiful drama... Casting is brilliant as is the acting!
A dark and deep tale of 3 women. It left me gasping for air. One of my very favorite movies.
Interesting concept & follow-through. 3 stories overlap in time, connected by theme to show how human relationship formed by place and era.
Excellent drama movie based on the book. Great cast with superb acting, well worth seeing
The book comes alive. Kidman was shockingly good! Three stories so intertwined well.
Amaaaazing😍 Complicated story and great acting...
Beautiful script, cast, music, directing and cinematography. An absolute triumph of film making.
So good. I can't believe I ended up watching it in the search of lesbian portrayals
Breathtaking performances and a complex yet truthful look on life
Brilliant writing and performances honoring Woolf
