this is like the third movie i've seen where tiles miller has some sort of car accident
time to revoke his license mayhaps
nicole kidman should have never done that movie where she wears a prosthetic nose because every time i watch one of her movies i think "is this the one where she wears a fake nose?" and then i'm sitting there for 90 minutes staring at her nose trying to decipher if it's real or fake

This is one of those films that adds an extra dimension if you have children. It is a bleak film, with a tiny sparkle of hope, about grief, relationships and family and while it didn't completely satisfy on an artistic level, on an emotional level it affected me deeply.
Slowly but surely in the story we learn about the tragic accident that killed Kidman's and Eckart's son. We get to know all involved and how the couple deal with this tragic loss. Central in this narrative is the relationship of the parents, the strain it is under and the way it effects people around them.…
I want to start this off by saying I’m not a parent so I can never even pretend to imagine what it’s like or even what the prospect of losing a child feels like. Which ultimately makes me feel like this movie just wasn’t for me. That being said, it didn’t feel right to heavily criticize this movie. So I’ll try to keep this brief:
Nicole Kidman’s performance was great, definitely the heart & soul of this movie. Aaron Eckhart also gave a great performance as Kidman’s husband. And Sandra Oh made the most of relatively limited screentime. It was cool seeing a young Miles Teller on the screen too.
Overall, this was honestly just a tough watch. I understand how…
the scene where ganja gal sandra oh and sexy sad dad aaron eckhart smoke weed and then uncontrollably giggle during group therapy for parents of dead children... yeah that's instant serotonin give me more of THAT

Your emotional response to Rabbit Hole will depend on your life experience. If you are a parent, this film will drain you emotionally.
As a father, Rabbit Hole is not an easy film to watch.
It's a film that I had to talk myself into watching. It would have been more difficult to watch it in 2010 when the film was released because my son would have been the same age as the character's in the movie.
Kidman, Eckhart, Oh, Wiest and then newcomer Teller all give wonderful performances.
Somewhere out there I'm having a good time.
Guaranteed to make you say "This guy made Hedwig and Shortbus?" Cool to now know that if for some reason John Cameron Mitchell's theater or music career didn't pan out, he could have absolutely exclusively relied on his ability as a director. It's strong in a subtle way, knowing the right kind of more stylish shots when they're needed, and also understanding well when the writing and the actors can speak for themselves. It's a story of grief, and overall not a fun watch in any regard, yet there comes some form of catharsis and forgiveness that feels rare in other films like it. Kidman and Eckhart both give good performance, and…
nicole was just OUTSTANDING in this i’m ...... as was aaron eckhart. i feel like this film went under the radar slightly but it deserves to be seen by as many people as possible
I think I like this because I like Becca, Kidman's character, the grieving mother of a dead child, who's really had it up to here with all the bullshit platitudes and guidelines about what she's supposed to feel. All around her are people who prefer to paper over emotional turmoil and pain, whether with religion, cultural niceties, or sentimental fetishism. I love the combination of Becca's defiant spirit and innate tenderness, which Kidman inhabits completely. The filmmaking isn't exactly challenging any boundaries, but it works for this kind of character-driven feature.
-On further reflection, I'm reminded of Pieces of a Woman with this, another story about a woman experiencing grief or sorrow or whatever it is in ways that those around her don't approve of. In this film, however, there's a narrow focus, while Pieces gets lost in its own multiple refractions.

Pretty good. Nice acting. It’s slow and feels indie but it’s reminds me “things we lost in the fire” which is a fav film of mine. Grief movies are interesting cause grief itself is so bizarre. I don’t think you can watch them and go “ah nah I don’t believe that” cause it’s different for everyone. Idk, don’t expect much.

Film yg emosional ini cukup bagus menggambarkan kondisi psikologis pasangan muda paska anaknya meninggal. All the sadness, anger, denial, etc seems real. Dan lagi aku suka music score yg somehow bisa membuat emosi di film ini makin terasa.
Miles Teller should do more wholesome roles.
It's a quiet movie about loss, mourning and recovery. It avoids cliché and melodrama and has some quite good moments, particularly the jab at religious conformism and the excuse of God and his ever mysterious ways. It also shows how each one of us can reach resignation in our own way and at our own time. There are no magic solutions that work for everyone and, even after acceptance, the pain lingers forever. On a sidenote, I just loved Jason's Fletcher Hanks t-shirt (quite an obscure comic book fandom detail).
Es una película tranquila sobre la pérdida, el luto y la recuperación. Evita los clichés y el melodrama y tiene algunos momentos bastante buenos, en particular el ataque al conformismo…

everyone’s talking about nicole kidman’s performance, rightfully so, but miles teller absolutely blew me away in this. so much raw pain and hurt from him, when he’s just trying to be a kid. so heartbreaking. both the play and the movie have moments that i wish were in the other, but i truly loved both so much.

I’ve never lost a child but I lost my mother when I was 18 years old, and while the experiences aren’t the exact same there is enough in common to make this movie resonate with me in a way I was not expecting.
I shared a great many aspects with the main characters. I too went to a grief counseling group. I too felt that momentary panic when someone who didn’t know about my mom asked me a question about her. I have felt sudden bursts or rage or sadness directed at people or events that had only the slightest, cursory aspect in common with my own life. And I also have felt the way the grandmother did when she…

Becca and Howie lost their son, Danny, in a car accident in front of their home a year ago. Becca wants to eliminate traces of Danny from her life. Howie is trying to cope by flirting with a woman at his group therapy. Becca fights everyone including her mother who is still mourning her son's/Becca's brother's death from an overdose. Becca also encounters Jason the 16 year old driver in her child's accident and starts a friendship. When Becca and Howie show their home for sale, Jason shows up to give her his comic book. Howie orders Jason out of the house when he realizes who he is. Becca reads the comic and realizes she can live without grieving so…
A nice, meditative film on grief that also includes a really well done slap by Nicole Kidman and a controlled Diane Wiest infection. I would love to see the original play now knowing that the story is spread in between 5 characters instead of focusing more so on the parents.
