Afterwards we went over to Steak and Shake and got a little bit caught up on the happenings of the last five years.
We are in agreement, The Hours was really good. Nicole Kidman's performance was particularly impressive. Only very rarely do you see a glimpse of her... mostly you just see Virginia Wolfe. The makeup on her was really good, though I found it overdone on the aging of other characters at other times.
The script is fantastic. Don't watch the preview - previews these days show too much and spoil the experience. Just go see the movie.
