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.
