Rabbit Hole - DVD Review
Starring Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart, Dianne Wiest and Sandra Oh.
Directed by John Cameron Mitchell.
What works here are the honest moments and performances, especially Eckhart, as one of the most sympathetic characters he's been allowed to play. He and Kidman play parents grieving their death of their only child, and it's not an exercise of wallowing in misery; it's a more realistic take on the day-to-day coping of two people whose lives have been forever altered.
But whatever chemicals Kidman has injected into her forehead, she should remove them.
