"She is that rare thing: a wonderful actress, a wonderful soul possessed of that skinlessness that the camera is greedy for, which allows us to glimpse all of her frailties, her sorrows, her joys, her good heart. She manages all of those things with grace, style and an astonishing work ethic."

March 4th, 2010 - First review from screening of Rabbit Hole

    IMDB user ‘reemmeer71′ saw a preview screening of this movie recently, and posted a review on the IMDB forums. You will no doubt be interested in this – it sounds promising!

    I was extremely lucky to have the chance to view this New movie in a special house screening at a friend in the film industry in Italy “am not titled to mention any details” Please mind my English as it’s not my first language, this is my first time to post on IMDB as I wanted to share my experience of such a great piece of work after a friend advised me to do so.

    I haven’t seen the play which the movie is based on … never gut a chance to go through the work of The director John Cameron Mitchell, but after watching this movie I would love to see his previous films.
    I need to inform you spoilers might be appeal in the text, not describing actual events or twists, but in picturing how the scenes are taking place.

    SPOILERS!

    The Movie starts with black screen , hearing a woman voice crying heavily … she whispers two words & keep repeating them over & over , but we don’t get to understand until the very end of the movie .

    The director is clearly making a larger critical statement about the iron cage of American Family , a cage Kidman’s character created with endless efforts from Her husband & family to set her free , she lives in the golden bars of its complacency, and the danger of breaking out—indeed, of the very dream of breaking out … at some point the building of her character through the movie seems to confuse me … she jumps from being a strong well independent woman , sometimes extremely funny in truly harsh situations to some one soulless empty & devastated .

    The movie is focusing on how the death of the perfect family’s kid has changed their lives & created the sudden realization & the purpose of the mother’s existence, The Mother refuses to accept the fact of her lost kid with magnificent effort from her husband to pull her out from her darkness …

    As I personally found the story is very simple in general , but the movie dragged me into seriously unpleasant thought of how devastating this could be & how it could turn the perfect couple’s life into hell, as their relationship deteriorates into an endless cycle of arguing and jealousy .

    Through out the almost two hours the couple spend most of the screen time yelling at each other, being miserable, and a mother complaining about her existence a father trying to stick with what left from his perfect marriage & used to be beautiful wife who turned to be a totally different stranger.

    The movie is not everyone’s cup of tea , it’s a absolutely miserable The film is based in a harsh reality , It’s a sad and dark story, but finds some humor in human suffering, which the performances bring out .

    I was disappointed Only with the extremely short screen time of Sandra Oh & I believe Dianne Wiest could have given a larger scale , who is one of the very underrated actors in my won opinion.

    Kidman was phenomenal in here , I always loved her stable acting in movies like Birth & Dogville but in this flick she balanced her acting tools perfectly with a sensational stable act through out the movie & two or three long break downs takes. There is a scene that reminds me of Naomi’s Watts break down Kitchen in 21 grams , in which Kidman had a remarkable heartbreaking long talking & crying scene. Aaron Couldn’t quite keep up with Kidman, but is still unexpectedly thrilling to watch taking into consideration the material given, and out does some of his more recent performances.

    If there is any question you would like to ask you are most welcome , but please don’t PM me , am not titled to mention any details about the screening presses or any major spoilers or the ending.
