SynopsisThree women, each living in a different time and place, are all linked by their yearnings and their fears as they search for more potent, meaningful lives.
Virginia Woolf (Kidman), in a suburb of London in the early 1920s, is battling insanity as she begins to write her first great novel, Mrs. Dalloway.
Laura Brown (Moore), a wife and mother in Los Angeles at the end of World War II, is reading Mrs. Dalloway, and finding it so revelatory that she begins to consider making a devasting change in her life.
Clarissa Vaughan (Streep), a contemporary version of Woolf's Mrs. Dalloway, lives in New York City today, and is in love with her friend Richard (Harris), a brilliant poet who is dying of AIDS.
Their stories intertwine, and finally come together in a surprising, transcendent moment of shared recognition.
