Product Description

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.

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.

Eight months after the accidental death of their 4-year-old son Danny, Howie (Aaron Eckhart) and Becca (Nicole Kidman) are attending a therapy group and are at that point where nothing ever seems to be the right thing to say and both are bumbling along in an emotional void. Now he wants to keep reminders of his son and start another family, she wants to sell their home and make a fresh start as all the reminders sadden her. Can they reconcile their differences or will their differing approaches tear them apart?
The problem is this film starts in the middle as they are already attending the therapy group, so you have to put it all together, it makes sense once you get into the film, but it’s slightly confusing at first. However it remains a film on two levels, the mundane everyday life contrasting with the emotion, turmoil and grief of a death.
The single disc opens to 3 trailers then goes to main menu offering just play, scene selection and set up [5.1 or 2.0 default].
This is a riveting story of inter-relationships, grief and how it changes people. Not fast paced by any means but it is absorbing as the various threads of the story reveal themselves and does have a few light hearted moments. There are also many thought provoking and true to life moments with an ending that’s absolutely spot on. Overall an emotional ***** that will appeal, especially to those who have lost someone close.

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 simplicity of this movie is that it portrays a story probably played out in millions of suburban homes. The loss of a child, two people, grief, and then the question what next? It starts at a point in time and ends in a point in time. There's no real beginning and no real end. As a the viewer we are left with an open ended story to complete ourselves. I enjoyed the movie. It was quiet, simple, real, thought provoking. Two great actors acting out everyday life in a sympathetic and quiet way.

A beautiful film and agree I thought it may be depressing but it wasn't as it tackles the subject of grief so well and very realistically , it shows the real emotions the parents face and it is comforting to know that all of us feel the same / similar emotions in life so we are not alone even though grief is a very lonely road to walk films like this can offer some comfort in knowing we all feel sadness and loss in our lives in one way or another but the loss of a child is the deepest pain to bear and yet people go forward in life and it is amazing what the human soul and spirit can get through

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.
