Apple has debuted the trailer for Rabbit Hole which I saw and quite enjoyed at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film, above all else, features a stellar performance from Nicole Kidman, but also manages to excel where other grief-stricken features fail. Here’s a snippet from my review:
David Lindsay-Abaire (Inkheart) adapted his own Pulitzer Prize-winning play for director John Cameron Mitchell (Shortbus) with a story centered on Becca (Nicole Kidman) and Howie (Aaron Eckhart), a married couple that lost their son eight months earlier and are still adjusting to his absence. Lionsgate picked the film up after it’s Toronto debut and has already set a December 17 release date where they will most certainly push for a Nicole Kidman Oscar nomination among other awards potential. The film co-stars Aaron Eckhart, Dianne Wiest, Tammy Blanchard and Miles Teller.
