Rabbit Hole is a searing drama that, despite its bleak theme, bravely posits how even the deepest emotional abyss need not become a prison of depression and hopelessness.

Rabbit Hole may sound bleak, and it surely is at times, but its refreshingly unhistrionic take on the subject coupled with Kidman's mammoth performance make it a rewarding experience.

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

The script, adapted by playwright David Lindsay-Abaire from his own Pulitzer Prize winner, demonstrates an extreme, occasionally comic, distaste for the sentimentality often provoked by other people's grief.

This emotionally dense film about grief, coping with loss and finding a way to get life back on track, takes us into heart wrenching territory

This is one tricky subject to navigate, but [Mitchell] ably corrals his cast and complements them with a perfectly calibrated directorial touch.

There's a light at the end of Rabbit Hole that makes this tearful trek worthwhile.

It is a complicated and difficult film that is also extraordinarily sincere and honest.

This is a film that may haunt you. It's painful to watch because the characters are in such pain in this show that can be classified only as a tragedy.

A stirring meditation on grief gives way to some unexpectedly light hearted moments, in the impeccably acted drama Rabbit Hole.

An absorbing, sensitive drama that feels painfully, and often amusingly, true.

The sheer excruciating, stultifying good taste of this movie is almost unbearable - so tasteful it could have started out as a coffee-table book, though actually it is based on a Pulitzer-winning play by David Lindsay-Abaire.

It's a slight, well-acted tale in search of an epiphany.

Inevitably, Rabbit Hole is a film that's easier to commend than it is to like.

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