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

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 1 May 2011
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly Credible 29 Jun 2011
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Outstanding Deeply Moving Film 2 Sep 2012
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strangely up-lifting 21 Feb 2011
This is like the anti-christ to the film Anti-christ, a lighter more realistic look at loss and grief but strangely up-lifting and some comic touches among the horrible subject matter. The issues at hand are hard to empathise with and thus fore will put alot of movie-goers off seeing it but stick with it and it is quite rewarding stuff.

It takes a look at all aspects of grief and from all sides, even some of the minor charachters are important to the grieving process. I would go so far as to say this is actually a very therapeutical film not in a curable fasion just subtly affecting especially to someone who may have lost a child. This is due to its honest take and 'light at the end of the tunnel' approach.

The acting is first rate, depressing at times but always demanding of your attention, dont think ive ever seen Kidman better. Eckhart is also a million miles away from Two-face obviously but really plays the reluctant emotive male part very well.

It has moments of dark humour and an ending that spells things out to its rightful conclusion. The sub-plot of Eckhart's charachter seems a little tacked on compared to Kidman's determination to befriend the manslaughterer of the aforementioned child.

Worth a watch. The most appropriate film that concentrates mainly on loss i have seen.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie 8 Aug 2011
I saw this movie at the theater and found it an emotional masterpiece. Nicole Kidman is just stunning and the pain of the loss of a child is almost palpable. Rabbithole isn't a movie which makes you happy, it makes you think about what's important in life. 5 stars!

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely film 28 April 2014
By Dolly
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

By BigAl82

A beautiful film about coping with loss. Or not coping. Never before have I been so effected or affected by a film. I highly reccommend this film to anyone who appreciates a good cry. And excellent performances from a staggering cast.
