Rabbit Hole Reviews

Clem Bastow
The Vine

Rabbit Hole is tender and sensitive where it counts, but also terminally tasteful. And there's nothing tasteful about grief.

Like Crash without the clunky characterization, Rabbit Hole is film as medicine, a big, pretty pill to be uncomfortably swallowed.

The writing is too self-aware. The film cries out for moments that are not about the couple's search for re-engagement.

News of the World

Plays out with all the subtlety of one of those bum-awful "issues-driven" episodes of EastEnders. You half-expect an "if you were affected by the events in this movie, you can call our special helpline" message to drone out over the end credits.

Here the proceedings are so lifeless that you find yourself rooting for the narrative to fully tread into the disaster zones with which it flirts.

John Cameron Mitchell's too decorous tale of parental grief and conflict is wise as far as it goes, but tastefully bourgeois to a fault.

Far too spic-and-span orderly for its own good.

If you'd like to wallow in the exquisite suffering of the upper middle classes for 90 minutes this might be just the film for you.

The problem with 'Rabbit Hole' is that it plays at one unrelentingly gloomy frequency: occasional moments of humour or tension are simply unable to puncture the overriding sense of oppressive sadness.

Kidman is able to draw you in even as the movie's solemn, morbid obviousness wears you out.

Cole Smithey

This year's feel-bad holiday drama is an equivalent of "Revolutionary Road" crossed with "Reservation Road," but is nowhere effective as either.

Everyone monologues, philosophises, weeps or does stream-of-consciousness cadenzas. No one has a human quirk or foible.

If you must watch the portrait of a marriage strained to breaking-point, try the recent Blue Valentine, where you at least feel sorry for the unhappy couple that once cherished and loved each other.

An intense tale of a couple grieving from the loss of their 4-year-old son in a car accident.

All that emotion never quite manages to inspire the deep, resonant empathy these stricken parents -- and, more to the point, we in the audience -- so desperately need.

As a viewing experience, the film is by turns heartrending and stultifying, but mostly stultifying.

Rabbit Hole doesn't entertain, inform or even stir the emotions.
