Résumé de l'éditeur

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.
Split into three parts, the story observes Mrs. Ramsay, Mr. Ramsey, and their children at their vacation house on the Isle of Skye. While the novel follows seemingly trivial events between the family members, the plot takes a backseat to philosophical introspection, which gave the novel its fame as an icon of modernist literature. The Ramseys’ quest to recapture meaning creates a powerful allegory of man’s impermanent battle with the tangible world.

Superbe !

Un grand fan à la fois de Virginia Woolf et de Nicole Kidman, j'étais
impatient de découvrir cette version... Et je n'ai pas été déçu !
La voix sensuelle et mystérieuse de Kidman se prête merveilleusement à
l'univers de Virginia... Le voyage des protagonistes, aussi bien
intérieur que sur cette île en Ecosse est finement retranscris.
A noter que l'actrice de "Moulin Rouge" a auparavant interprété l'auteur dans "The Hours" de Stephen Daldry en 2002.
Je le recommande vivement.

Un huge fan both of Nicole Kidman and Virginia Woolf, I couldn't wait
for this version. And I have not been disappointed !
The sensuel and mysterious voice of Kidman is the best to show Woolf's
fantasy world.
Kidman has interpreted Woolf in "The Hours", directed by Stephen Daldry
in 2002.
I really recommand it.
