Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart in the Rabbit Hole trailer
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
I can’t really explain why, but I’m a huge fan of emotional tear-jerkers. I think when a movie is able to move you to tears, then it has managed to hit you on an emotional level and that’s not an easy thing for a movie to do. I’m guessing that there’s going to be lots of tears flowing when people check out RABBIT HOLE in theaters because I teared up during the trailer. The film is about a married couple that struggle to move on after the death of their son. The film stars Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart, Sandra Oh, Dianne Wiest and Jon Tenney. John Cameron Mitchell is directing the film, which is based off the play of the same name.
Moving on after losing a child is something that I can’t even fathom. I’m not sure I want to watch a whole movie dedicated to the subject, but the trailer makes it look like a fascinating character study. It also looks like Kidman and Eckhart are on top of their game. Watch the trailer here.
