I had heard lots of positive reviews of Rabbit Hole, so when I saw it was being aired on TV, I was keen to watch it. I was a little apprehensive that it couldn't be as good as the reviews suggested, but I was also hopeful that it might be.
Nicole Kidman plays Becca, and Eckhart her husband, Howie, who have lost their 4 year old son in an accident. The film focuses on how they are dealing (or not, as the case may be) with their grief months after their son has died.
I have literally nothing negative to say about this film. The performances are first rate, the script and storyline spot-on, and it's had me feeling sad about the whole scenario for days. Having a year old son probably helps here, but I defy anyone not to be in tears by the end of (or even long before that) the Rabbit Hole.
Rating: 5 out of 5
