Rabbit Hole writer David Lindsay-Abaire has spoken about Nic in a recent interview:
Let’s begin with the Oscars. We know who you’re rooting for…
Yes, Annette Bening. I hope she takes it home. No! Nicole Kidman, of course! [Laughs]
What did Nicole bring to the role of a grieving mom in Rabbit Hole?
She’s one of those unique actresses who can do two things at the same time, especially with a character like this who is so brittle on the surface but deep and soulful underneath. When the camera comes in for a close-up, you know what’s going on beneath that skin of hers.
