The Hours

Richard (Ed Harris) kills himself by jumping out of his apartment window. His mother is Laura Brown (Julianne Moore) who realized the night of Dan's (John C. Reilly's) birthday that she was living a lie as a wife and mother, and so abandoned her family after her daughter is born, to live in Canada as a librarian. Laura came back years later to visit Clarissa (Meryl Streep) because she heard of Michael's death; Clarissa realizes her life of spiritual and sexual freedom is to be celebrated, not doubted and taken for granted. Virginia Woolf (Nicole Kidman) leaves the train station to go back to her husband, but kills herself a few years later by wading into the river with rocks in her pockets.
thanks, Amanda T and Jessica K!
