MOVIE OF THE WEEK: Rabbit Hole


Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart are excellent in this touching film about a couple struggling with the grief of losing their child. Due to smart choices by the director and a quality script, the film didn't turn into an over-dramatic "Lifetime movie"(though there was a lot of crying). Instead, "Rabbit Hole" was a realistic portrayal of the mourning process and its impact on family relationships and everyday interactions with other people. Somehow it manages to be ultimately hopeful amidst all of the depression. A lot better than some of the Oscar bait being thrown around this year.
