The Hours is a revisionist melodrama about three women. It centers around the theme of anti-feminism. The film takes a dramatic turn, when it ends in suicide.
The Hours is not a melodrama. The film centers around a selfish woman who decides to take her own life instead of leaving her children. This woman was so selfish, because she did not even consider the affects her decisions would have on her children. She just thought what was best for her. She completely disregards the psychological effects of her suicide and continues with her fate.
