    To the Lighthouse is Virginia Woolf’s arresting analysis of domestic family life, centering on the Ramseys and their visits to the Isle of Skye in Scotland in the early 1900s. Nicole Kidman (Moulin Rouge, Eyes Wide Shut), who won an Oscar for her portrayal of Woolf in the film adaptation of Michael Cunningham’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel The Hours, brings the impressionistic prose of this classic to vibrant life.

    What disappointed you about To the Lighthouse?

    I love To the Lighthouse but had never "heard" it before. Nicole Kidman positively
    ruined it…mushy articulation, dropped her voice at the end of every sentence and had
    that god-awful Australian accent.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of To the Lighthouse?

    When it was over


    What didn’t you like about Nicole Kidman’s performance?

    Very poor articulation, dropped her voice at the end of each sentence, literally ran out
    of breath. Plus, she has a pronounced Australian accent which clashed with Virginia
    Woolf's lovely story.


    What character would you cut from To the Lighthouse?

    It wasn't the writing--that was wonderful.


    Any additional comments?

    Miss Kidman should have at least auditioned for the part, rather than just being hired because of her celebrity status.
