Mitchell is a filmmaker who seems to genuinely like people, a far rarer bird than you'd imagine.

Rabbit Hole is a beautiful examination of relationships. It exceeds normal genre expectations and has some fantastic acting.

In a tale of tragic loss, unexpected friendships, and finding happiness in whatever that may be, RABBIT HOLE scores big.

Rabbit Hole is hardly what you'd call a date movie, and it's difficult to see what kind of audiences it'd appeal to outside of awards season chin-strokers.

John Cameron Mitchell's "Rabbit Hole" is a heart-breaking, somewhat depressing film that deals with one of the worst tragedies a couple can face. It is also one of the best films of the year.

Un drama íntimo y conmovedor, narrado con sobriedad, sin golpes bajos y con una profunda empatía y cariño por sus personajes. Dentro de un notable elenco se destacan las actuaciones de Nicole Kidman y Dianne Wiest.

Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart give marvelous, shaded performances of grief-stricken parents attempting to move on without forgetting their pain.

The actors don't flinch from the task and there is hope at the end, though it may feel like small reward after so much digging.

One of the very best films of 2010.

Director John Cameron Mitchell's restrained handling of the film's rawest moments keeps it from descending into soul-wrenching lamentations.

It might be that this material is simply better suited to the theater, with its enforced artificiality and its crackling, dragging blacks.

A very fine domestic drama that avoids the pitfall of becoming maudlin and offers many surprising little twists along the way.

When Nicole Kidman has full control of her facial muscles she is unrivaled in her ability to play cold, distant emotionally scarred bitches. Its a marvelous performance. That said, the film itself can be so anguished that you will need counseling upon exit
| Original Score: 3.5/5

a raw and complex character study that challenges our identification and sympathies at every turn

Exquisitely raw and painful, sure, but also richly humane and deeply cathartic, for David Lindsay-Abaire's Pulitzer and Tony award winning play is nothing short of a masterpiece.

Quality drama, sure, but it doesn't go anywhere unexpected. For a film whose title evokes Alice's mysterious journey through Wonderland, it might have amounted to a little more.

John Cameron Mitchell has done an amazing job capturing the heart of these delicate characters.

It's an unsentimental, occasionally amusing insight into two people who don't know how to become normal again. A very affecting and fine debut for Kidman as producer.

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.
