Based on the Pulitzer prize winning play, Nicole Kidman produces and stars in Rabbit Hole. A husband and wife struggles to recover some normalcy in their lives after the accidental death of their young son. Aaron Eckhart plays the husband, and he and Nicole have wonderful chemistry. Dianne Wiest is Nicole’s mother in the film, and gives a raw and heartfelt performance. This is a tough subject to explore, and Rabbit Hole does it very well.
Becca and Howie Corbett are a happily married couple whose perfect world is forever changed when their young son, Danny, is killed by a car. Becca, an executive-turned-stay-at-home mother, tries to redefine her existence in a surreal landscape of well-meaning family and friends. Painful, poignant, and often funny, Becca's experiences lead her to find solace in a mysterious relationship with a troubled young comic-book artist, Jason - the teenage driver of the car that killed Danny. Becca's fixation with Jason pulls her away from memories of Danny, while Howie immerses himself in the past, seeking refuge in outsiders who offer him something Becca is unable to give. The Corbetts, both adrift, make surprising and dangerous choices as they choose a path that will determine their fate.
