Rabbit Hole

Director: John Cameron Mitchell.

Starring: Dianne Wiest, Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart, Miles Teller, Sandra Oh, Stephen Mailer, and Giancarlo Esposito

This is a sad tale which deals with the aftermath of an unspeakable tragedy. The equilibrium of the lives of Becca (Nicole Kidman) and Howie (Aaron Eckhart) is smashed with the death of their beautiful, four year old son, Danny. Killed accidentally by a car driven by teenager Jason (Miles Teller) the couple become more and more preoccupied with grief. Based on the David Lindsay-Abaire's Pulitzer prize-winning play it works better on stage and despite good performances from Kidman and co., it fails as a movie. A real weepie which is very intense at times.
