From the Heartland of the Sensitive Few

“The Hours, directed by Stephen Daldry (Billy Elliot), is silly and essentially insufferable, a cri de coeur on behalf of the sensitive few (mostly repressed homosexuals apparently) suffering horribly at the hands of the insensitive and boorish multitude. Self-involved and self-important to a dangerously high degree, The Hours, more generally, speaks to and for that section of the American middle class (a good portion of it residing in Manhattan) that considers its personal and professional activities the final word in human affairs.”

David Walsh reviews “The Hours” at the World Socialist Web Site: “Virginia Woolf cannot be held responsible”.
