Product Description

Rabbit Hole is the new film from John Cameron Mitchell (Shortbus, Hedwig and the Angry Inch) based on the Pulitzer Prize winning play by David Lindsay Abaire.

Set in the suburbs of America, Rabbit Hole tells the story of Becca and Howie Corbett, a married couple struggling to return to their everyday existence several months after the loss of their child. Becca and Howie embark on seperate journeys, making increasingly unexpected choices that threaten to pull them apart. Distancing herself from her family and her own emotions, Becca begins to surreptitiously follow a local teenage boy with whom she shares an unexplained connection. Howie clings wholeheartedly onto his memories and places his faith in the everyday routines of life, but an acquaintance at a group therapy session offers a more unconventional method of dealing with his feelings.

With their world tilted off its axis, the couple must decide whether to allow their increasingly fractured personal journeys to bring them back together. Rabbit Hole is a vivid, honest and unexpectedly funny portrait of a family searching for what remains possible in the most impossible of situations.

83rd Academy Awards Nominee (Actress In A Leading Role): Nicole Kidman

From Amazon.co.uk

What happens after the unthinkable happens? Rabbit Hole, based on the Tony-winning play by David Lindsay-Abaire and deftly directed by John Cameron Mitchell, slowly reveals the answer: something else unthinkable. Rabbit Hole is a moving, dark character study of what happens to a happily married couple, Becca and Howie (Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart), who suddenly lose the love of their life, their 4-year-old son. As in real life, the grief portrayed in Rabbit Hole takes peculiar twists and turns, and the deep sorrow and tragedy of the story is leavened by dark humour--much of it coming from Kidman. While Rabbit Hole is not an upbeat film, it's emotionally resonant in the ways of some of the best films on similar subjects--like Ordinary People, Revolutionary Road, In the Bedroom. Both Kidman and Eckhart bring true humanity to roles that could have been one-dimensional. Kidman, especially, rejects the platitudes offered by the grievance support groups and well-meaning friends. When one acquaintance explains the loss of her own child as, "God needed another angel," Kidman's Becca snaps. "Then why wouldn't He have just made another angel? He's God, after all. Why not just make another angel?" The beauty and power of Rabbit Hole comes from showing how Becca and Howie make it back to a life they can bear--and, just maybe, to each other. The excellent supporting cast includes Sandra Oh (another member of the support group) and Dianne Wiest as Becca's mum, who's been through something similar. Everything about Rabbit Hole feels genuine, almost delicate, from the cinematography to the gentle but extremely moving score. Rabbit Hole is one of the most moving dramas and one of the saddest films a viewer will feel gratified to embrace. --A.T. Hurley

We lost our daughter a year and a half ago and this movie really struck a chord with me. It very accurately portrayed some of the emotions and challenges faced by parents who lose a child, including differences in how mothers and fathers deal with grief and how this impacts their marriage. The script was obviously well researched and David Lindsay-Abaire deserves the accolades he received for the play. Nicole Kidman was also spectacular. I hope that this film helps friends, family and acquaintances of people who have lost children to better understand why bereaved parents behave the way they do and that they can use all of the support they can get.

Kidman and Eckhart lost their son Danny 8 months ago as he ran into the street and got hit by a car. At first glance it appears the atheist Kidman is having more trouble coping with the loss as each parent copes with the loss in their own way, but they are on different time schedules. Early in the film Kidman's sister calls her in the middle of the night to pick her up at the police station. She was in a bar room fight with another girl. As it turns out, she is pregnant by a musician and the girl she fought with was his ex-gf, which he was still living with. At times the movie is a dark comedy.

At some point it becomes time to pack the memories away and get on with your life. Kidman reaches that point before Eckhart. She leaves group therapy and does her own therapy by talking to the teenage boy who accidentally killed her son. As it turns out it is good therapy for him, as he too must learn to cope with grief. Another awkward aspect of the grief situation is how relatives and neighbors respond to the grievers. As the movie points out there are no good ways, or at least it is a fine line few people can walk as some people try too hard to be there while others don't try enough.

In the movie "The Rabbit Hole" is the title of a comic book the teenage boy is creating. It becomes a metaphor for coping with grief as people create substitutes for their lost loved one, by visiting alternate realities in parallel universes, but they can never really go back because their love one is dead.

In addition to the comic book, Kidman gets advice from her mother. She tells her that you never get over the loss, but your feelings do change. It is like carrying a brick around in your pocket. You carry it around for so long, sometimes you forget it is there. Then you reach into your pocket for something, and suddenly there it is.

This is a lovely film about a truly difficult subject. As a grieving mother myself, I could understand and empathise with the main characters. Without giving away the ending, it is so poignant. I have to say it is a must for anybody who thinks that a parent's grief diminishes or is easy. It highlights the problems faced.

A deeply moving film about a couple coping with the bereavement of their four year old son and the ways in which they try to get by. Dark and moving subject matter but very well handled and in places also darkly humorous in a touching and sensitive way. Very well acted by all concerned and tactfully done. Intelligent,thought provoking and insightful. I believe grieving families would benefiit from this film as it empathises with their loss in a respectful manner. Meanwhile insight is given to those who have not endured such loss to better understand the hurdles that must be overcome by a family mourning the loss of their child. It took me a long time to pick up the courage to watch this film as I feared the film would not do justice to the subject matter. In my view it handles it in a very touching and compassionate way . I agree with the other five star reviews and applaud all those who were involved in making this film the outstanding film it is.

The film gives you some insight to how Becca and Howie cope with the loss of their son. You get a clear picture of how they deal with their grief in different ways, and how this impacts on their relationship. The effect of their grief on their family and friends, and how they handle the way in which other people respond to their grief.Becca's mother, who tries to comfort her, by making constant references to her own loss,but makes things worse. One of Becca's friends who has avoided her, and not contacted her since the death of her son, which is not unusual. People disappear when they have friends who are grieving, as they find it awkward, don't know what to say. Becca's sister, feels guilty about having a baby, and did not tell Becca first,as she found it difficult. Becca and Howie have their own ways of seeking comfort,but are unable to share their grief together, for most of the film. Howie gets some comfort from his support group, and there are several scenes in the group. where you get a picture of how isolated grieving couples feel.

The film may help couples who have lost children,as it illustrates that we all have our own ways of coping. It may also help people who can't understand their friends or families grief. It is not a feel good movie,and is slow to start with.It is something that I would recommend to others who want to learn about grief.

This was not an easy movie to watch, however in saying that, it is a movie that should be watched, by anyone and everyone, not just those who have had a child of theirs die. Nicole Kidman & Aaron Eckhart are at their respective very best, I thought Aaron Eckharts role as SGT Nance in Battle Los Angles was his pinicle in acting, yet here he takes on a completly different role, that of a bereaved father, and lifts his acting ability into the rarified level of those actors who reach across time and roles to portray with excellence whatever they put their mind to. I won't go here into explaining the movie, others have done that well - all I will say is that if you have the opportunity to, watch this movie and make sure you have a tissue or hankie handy (yes, that means guys too). Persevere with this movie, there are some very emotional confronting scenes and others that just reach out and grab you. I'd rate this 8 - 8.5 out of 10.
