Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart, Dianne Wiest, Tammy Blanchard
4.5 stars out of 5 - "A superlative adaptation....RABBIT HOLE takes grim subject matter -- the sudden death of a young married couple's 4 year old son -- and gives it depth, emotion and surprising layers of humor."
"[RABBIT HOLE] has dialogue that sears, but the canniest thing about it is that it carves shrewd and lively dramatic arcs out of souls who are too damaged to feel their own feelings." -- Grade: B
"[I]t is Kidman we want to watch most of all. When she is distraught and in pain, we can feel it, underlining how satisfying it is to see this actress take on a role that makes such good use of her great gift for naturalistic acting."
Los Angeles Times
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "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."
"RABBIT HOLE is a finely tuned portrait of grief that takes its time unfolding, much like the actual process of mourning....Nicole Kidman does some of her best, most nuanced work..."
"The plainness serves it, keeping the focus on the exceptional performances and the way grief keeps breaking through into everyday life at unexpected moments." -- Grade: A-
"[I]t's filled with delicately calibrated performances and nuanced moments of connection and disaffection..."
"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..."
Wall Street Journal
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "RABBIT HOLE is entertaining and surprisingly amusing, under the circumstances....Its humor comes, as the best does, from an acute observation of human nature."
3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] lucid, tough, deeply sensitive examination of emotional fortitude."
"As an auteur work, RABBIT HOLE is interesting....It's a brave -- and honest -- film..."
Sight and Sound
4 stars out of 5 -- "RABBIT HOLE's a wrenching celluloid therapy session, but one leavened with unexpected humour and searing exchanges that ripple with insight. Kidman is on blistering form..."
4 stars out of 5 -- "[I]t's a very subtle study of marriage under extreme strain....Directed with surprising restraint..."
