Actress Nicole Kidman plays a woman who is grieving the loss of her child, a tragedy that puts a strain on her marriage (Aaron Eckhart plays her husband) in Rabbit Hole. Based on the Pulitzer Prize winning play from David Lindsay-Abaire, the film is currently playing in limited release but will open to wider markets on Christmas Day. Kidman, who also produced the film, has received a Golden Globe, SAG, and Critics Choice nod for the part. “Part of the preparation I do as an actor is I create from birth to now, which is my homework of where we met. How we got married,” said Kidman. “All those things, what happened to my father because you never see my father (in the story). All the details of the performance and then you come to rehearsals and you do scenes. You slowly layer the performance.” Click on the media bar and listen to Kidman explain why death is a theme worth exploring.
