Rabbit Hole

Directed by John Cameron Mitchell, starring Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart & Dianne Wiest

Becca and Howie Corbett are a married couple struggling to return to their everyday existence several months after the loss of their child. With their world tilted off of its axis, they embark on separate journeys, making increasingly unexpected choices that threaten to pull them apart. But as a series of events unfold that offer to bring new meaning into their lives, the couple must decide whether to allow their personal journeys to bring them back together.

This is a superbly acted and well balanced drama. Not the happiest of subjects but one well worth watching to see Nicole Kidman back on top form after a few less than optimal film choices.

Verdict: A deeply moving drama with believable performances from everyone. ****
