Nicole Kidman gives one of the strongest performances of her career. One of the best films of 2010.

Pretty entertaining for all the wrong reasons. It'd be great to do a MST3000 of this. John Cameron Mitchell is a competent director. Too bad this just isn't his type of movie. It didn't have the verve of Hedwig and the Angry Inch or the character development of Shortbus. Hopefully he learns his lesson and does better next time around. You couldn't expect the actions to come from these characters unless they were insane and demented - and they were not supposed to be. Dianne Wiest gives the best performance, perhaps, especially in one scene where she is supposed to be drunk.

Gabby (Sandra Oh) was left by her husband and takes an interest in Howie while Becca meets Jason (Miles Teller).

David Lindsay-Abaire's play was beautifully-contrived, controlled, and set in the most rare and precious of places: grief. "Rabbit Hole" delves into coping mechanisms between these two extraordinary people, Howie and Becca Corbett: Howie's attempt to keep things status quo and Becca's attempt to rid every memory of losing her only son to a senseless, faultless accident. After reading the play, I actually expected more from experimental filmmaker John Cameron Mitchell, who could have allowed the brilliant cast to compose the lyrical account of grief for him, but I feel he had too much input into the character development, as well as fixating too much on the outside of the grief, as opposed to the more timbre-oriented inner-life of these magnificent characters crafted by a …
