Rabbit Hole 7/10
I'm not sure why director John Cameron Mitchell has taken so long in between directorial efforts. This is his best film since his debut, "Hedwig and the Angry Inch". "Rabbit Hole" is a sad and uncomfortable examination of life after the tragedy of losing one's child. The pace is a tad slow at first, but it is an adaptation of a Tony Award and Pulitzer Award-winning play that takes some time to develop. Nicole Kidman gives a powerful, understated performance as the mother, Becca, who grasps at ways to cope with the tragedy. She is receiving well-deserved Oscar buzz. Aaron Eckhart and Dianne Wiest also give respectable performances. It opens for limited release on December 17, 2010.
