Mrs. Dalloway on Film

Believe it or not, a book as experimental as Mrs. Dalloway has been adapted into a successful film. Vanessa Redgrave plays Clarissa with dignity in this film directed by Marleen Goris. The whole movie is available on YouTube, but if you don't want to worry about copyright infringement, look at a few clips first, and then pull up your Amazon or Netflix account to rent the rest. Here's a fun tidbit: Lena Headey, aka Cersei Lannister from Game of Thrones, plays Clarissa's dear friend Sally Seton.
