Storyline

Becca and Howie Corbett are a happily married couple whose perfect world is forever changed when their young son, Danny, is killed by a car. Becca, an executive-turned-stay-at-home mother, tries to redefine her existence in a surreal landscape of well-meaning family and friends. Painful, poignant, and often funny, Becca's experiences lead her to find solace in a mysterious relationship with a troubled young comic-book artist, Jason - the teenage driver of the car that killed Danny. Becca's fixation with Jason pulls her away from memories of Danny, while Howie immerses himself in the past, seeking refuge in outsiders who offer him something Becca is unable to give. The Corbetts, both adrift, make surprising and dangerous choices as they choose a path that will determine their fate. Written by Anonymous

Stuck in a Rabbit Hole
6 April 2011 | by tigerfish50See all my reviews

'Rabbit Hole' is a nice tidy showcase for the acting talents of an above average cast, but the story doesn't have much of an arc, and neither do any of the characters. Prosperous middle-class Becca and Howie have lost their four-year-old son in a car accident eight months prior to the film's opening. Howie is struggling to move on from their loss, but Becca tries to deal with the situation by suppressing her feelings. She rejects her husband's overtures for mutual consolation, treats friends and family with icy politeness when she's not snapping at them, and tries to banish memories of her deceased son by disposing of his possessions. The couple interact joylessly with their acquaintances and each other as they struggle with the burden of grief, even as their differing responses to the tragedy widens the breach in their relationship. Director Mitchell extracts respectable performances from the actors playing the six principal characters - Aaron Eckhart in particular - but he misses several opportunities to give his characters sympathetic nuances that would have resulted in deeper emotional impact. Unfortunately, in the final analysis the film doesn't amount to much more than a superior Sunday Night TV-movie weepie for some bourgeois intelligentsia demographic.
