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:

Oftentimes the best performances come out of grief-stricken features that allow actors to show their emotional range and Rabbit Hole is no exception. Yet, the advantage this film has over films of a similar nature is the fact its characters aren’t typically prone to overreaction and melodrama. These characters feel real and so does their sadness and the way they go about trying to cope. Instead of their grief wearing on you, you want to reach out and give them a hug.

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.
