Mrs Dalloway is a 1997 British drama film directed by Marleen Gorris and starring Vanessa Redgrave, Natascha McElhone and Michael Kitchen.[1] It is an adaptation of the 1925 novel by Virginia Woolf. It is a co-production by the United Kingdom, United States, and the Netherlands.

Plot[edit]

Clarissa Dalloway sets out on a beautiful morning to shop for flowers for her party that evening. At the same time in London, a young man is suffering from a nightmarish delayed-onset (the year is 1923) form of shell-shock. Clarissa's nearly-grown daughter is distant, and preoccupied. In the course of one day, Peter, a passionate old suitor, returns from India, there is a suicide, and Clarissa relives a day in her youth (and her reasons for her choice of a life with the reliable Richard Dalloway).
