It is like visually watching a classical musical masterpiece on the movie screen from start to finish. That is the best way to describe Rabbit Hole directed by John Cameron Mitchell and starring Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart. The film is based on a play by David Lindsay-Abaire who also develop the screenplay for the film. Dianne West also co-stars and brings on a strong performance as Kidman’s somewhat scattered but loving mother.
Every movement of the film is played out with instrumental perfection to the crescendo of its emotional peak with perfection by both leads, but it is Kidman who shines with her controlled but deeply moving performance of Becca Corbett.
The impact of the accidental death of their four year old son is excruciating played out by both Kidman and Eckhart that their grief is almost unbearable. You feel it palpable throughout the whole film which is kept very understated, and in many ways, that is how it successfully garners its highest emotional notes.
This is one of the best films of the year. It is definitely one of Nicole Kidman’s most memorable performances to date.
Rabbit Hole reminds us of the suddenness of death and perhaps the road out of grief.
It is a film definitely worth seeing.
