  • Nicole Kidman is just astonishing in Rabbit Hole - subtle, fierce, brutally funny, tender when you least expect it, and battered by the feelings that hit her when she forgets to duck. show more

  • As a viewing experience, the film is by turns heartrending and stultifying, but mostly stultifying. show more

  • Nicole Kidman places the bereaved heroine of Rabbit Hole in a nether land between life and not-quite-life. Her beautiful performance transcends the specifics of the script, which David Lindsay-Abaire adapted from his play of the same name. show more

    Brilliant, this fiilm coasts along on a as if it was a black shiny luxury hearse sliding on a track called grief and sorrow. the dialog and the silence work well against eachother. Kidman is brilliant and gives you a different performance as she didi in The Hours. It is also a susupense film where the darkness is hidden in the souls of the actors. Loved it and I am not easy to engage. Toby Ross
