The Hours Richmond Train Station Virginia and Leanord scene.
Virginia Woolf and Leonard train station scene at Richmond, UK from the film, the Hours
This Train station in Richmond, England scene from the film, The Hours, has so much emotional intelligence it should be mandatory viewing for couples. Forgive the image quality (obviously not HD) of this video capture and listen closely to Virginia and Leonard work through the argument to understanding/empathy and love. When Leonard collapses in the classic British semi-collapse, sans tears, then looks up at Virginia to inquire, “Are you hungry”? A sincere inner boy creature comfort line after a difficult obstacle has been overcome.
It is readily apparent how well acted this scene is by both actors. The reason the acting seems so genuine is that it is drawing on universal themes and human frailty.
