    Peter Travers Rolling Stone

    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

    Mick LaSalle San Francisco Chronicle

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

    Claudia Puig USA Today

    Profound and superbly acted, with a moving script superbly adapted from David Lindsay-Abaire's Pulitzer-winning play. show more

    Joe Morgenstern Wall Street Journal

    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

    Wrenching, poignant, and quietly healing. show more

    Joe Neumaier New York Daily News

    Kidman is able to draw you in even as the movie's solemn, morbid obviousness wears you out. show more

    Kirk Honeycutt The Hollywood Reporter

    The film does achieve moments of catharsis, but it can be heavy going. show more

    Stephanie Zacharek Movieline

    Director John Cameron Mitchell - adapting David Lindsay-Abaire's play - has a surprisingly deft touch with this admittedly downbeat material; he builds dramatic intensity in subtle layers, rather than slapping it on with a trowel. show more

    Ella Taylor NPR

    Mitchell brings respect, tenderness and a generous helping of his antic wit to Rabbit Hole, not to mention a rare gift for adding visual radiance to a talky stage play. show more

    Entertaining and surprisingly amusing, under the circumstances. The film is in a better state of mind than its characters. Its humor comes, as the best humor does, from an acute observation of human nature. 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

    I like most of the charactor parts Nicole plays and I almost cried over just what I saw from the trailer . Nicole should have won an award over this movie. She's a great actress. I can hardly wait to see Rabbit Hole. Looks liike a good movie to watch. Alsdo has a good cast.

    Not impressed with this movie at all. I don't know what all the hype was about. Don't rush to the theatre for this one...wait for TV.
