Rabbit Hole Reviews
Kidman plays Becca while aaron Eckhart plays howie. Together they play a couple who is trying to pick the pieces after their 4 year old sons death. becca wants to sell and get rid of anything that reminds them of their son danny. This pisses off Howie to no end as he wants another child with becca and doesn't want to erase the memory of his son. This puts the two at odds for a good portion of the iflm. At the same time Becca frequently meets the teenage boy responsible for his death and howie meets a woman he sees a group therapy. both of them look towards these people as ones who will in someway help them find their way to peace after this terrible tragedy.
Pretty good film. Nicole kidman's becca is interesting because she is trying to hide away and disregard the fact her son is dead. No matter how much she keeps doing this and it makes matters worse in her life. excellent performance from kidman. aaron Eckhart was really great here too. He had an amazingly well acted argument scene with kidman they both went toe to toe there it was sooo good. He also did a good job of playing the husband that wants to keep some kind of memory of their son despite how hard it is to overcome the greif. Miles teller has not changed one bit he looks the same here as he does now and same with Sandra oh. the relationship between Jason and becca in the film is interesting because it's the one person she isn't lashing out at in her life in regards to what happened and he's the biggest person of all to lash out at. its really ironic
there was many motifs involving drawings and certain symbols. interesting lighting usage its like right in the middle of low key and high key lighting. Overall this was a well written story with a Decent ending.
