Movie Review: The Rabbit Hole

As far as dead-kid movies go this is a good one with honest performances and a realistic, relatable story. Aaron Eckhart's performance is Oscar-worthy and Nicole Kidman's might have been as well if only her face moved. It was hard not to be distracted by her collagen-stuffed lips, and I couldn't help wondering why the hell she would do that to herself.
But I digress.
The Rabbit Hole is an absorbing story about a couple living a seemingly comfortable suburban life but struggling to deal with their own guilt and each other, as well as the void left by the loss of their son.
Good script, good performances.
4 out of 5 stars for The Rabbit Hole.
