Storyline

Becca and Howie Corbett are a happily married couple whose perfect world is forever changed when their young son, Danny, is killed by a car. Becca, an executive-turned-stay-at-home mother, tries to redefine her existence in a surreal landscape of well-meaning family and friends. Painful, poignant, and often funny, Becca's experiences lead her to find solace in a mysterious relationship with a troubled young comic-book artist, Jason - the teenage driver of the car that killed Danny. Becca's fixation with Jason pulls her away from memories of Danny, while Howie immerses himself in the past, seeking refuge in outsiders who offer him something Becca is unable to give. The Corbetts, both adrift, make surprising and dangerous choices as they choose a path that will determine their fate. Written by Anonymous

makes you feel good
19 January 2011 | by taneltederSee all my reviews

Rabbit Hole is a wonderful drama. I thought it might be good. I honestly didn't think that it could be that good. It's sad tale. The movie is more suitable to people who are more mature. People who have kids or who have lost someone really dear might find this one a real pleasure. Younger viewers who enjoy mostly American-pie-style movies don't find it much interesting. Everybody, who likes good dramas which are based on a tragic stories and concentrates on the relationships between characters, will fancy this film very much.

Aaron Eckhart and Nicole Kidman are a great couple here. I clearly see why Kidman personally chose Eckhart to play his husband. They are so natural. It was pleasing to see those two together. A definite match.

I must admit, the story is quite somber, but I found myself happy after seeing it. That's probably because I was fascinated by the great performances of both lead actors. It may work for you too.
