“The only way out is through.”
Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “RABBIT HOLE is a vivid, hopeful, honest and unexpectedly witty portrait of a family searching for what remains possible in the most impossible of all situations.
Becca and Howie Corbett (Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart) are returning to their everyday existence in the wake of a shocking, sudden loss. Just eight months ago, they were a happy suburban family with everything they wanted. Now, they are caught in a maze of memory, longing, guilt, recrimination, sarcasm and tightly controlled rage from which they cannot escape. While Becca finds pain in the familiar, Howie finds comfort.
The shifts come in abrupt, unforeseen moments. Becca hesitantly opens up to her opinionated, loving mother (DIANNE WIEST) and secretly reaches out to the teenager involved in the accident that changed everything (MILES TELLER); while Howie lashes out and imagines solace with another woman (SANDRA OH). Yet, as off track as they are, the couple keeps trying to find their way back to a life that still holds the potential for beauty, laughter and happiness. The resulting journey is an intimate glimpse into two people learning to re-engage with each other and a world that has been tilted off its axis.
RABBIT HOLE is directed by John Cameron Mitchell (‘Hedwig and the Angry Inch’) from a script by acclaimed playwright David Lindsay-Abaire, adapted from his Pulitzer Prize-winning play. The cast, led by Academy Award® winner Nicole Kidman (‘The Hours,’ Actress in a Leading Role, 2002) and Golden Globe® nominee Aaron Eckhart, includes two-time Oscar® winner Dianne Wiest (‘Hannah and Her Sisters,’ Actress in a Supporting Role, 1986; ‘Bullets Over Broadway,’ Actress in a Supporting Role, 1994), Tammy Blanchard, Miles Teller, Giancarlo Esposito, Jon Tenney and Sandra Oh.”
Lionsgate and The Compassionate Friends have created a social media partnership in support of the upcoming release of John Cameron Mitchell’s RABBIT HOLE—hosted on the official Facebook fan page for “Rabbit Hole.” Lionsgate and TCF have developed a custom Facebook application which allows users to upload original inspirational messages, artwork, and videos. The program reinforces the philosophy that the best way to work through grief is through love and artistic expression. It provides a resource for the newly bereaved to interact with other users who have survived a period of grief and loss and who have learned to live and love again.
Lionsgate hopes to encourage audiences to celebrate the manner in which the film beautifully and poignantly explores the concept of loss with an honest and knowing humor. Additionally, Rabbit Hole’s partnership with TCF offers a unique opportunity to extend the film’s message of love and hope to the social media space, where film goers can continue to explore the universal themes explored in the film, while also having real-world discussion about coping with grief.

—Peter Debruge, Variety
…a raw and complicated emotional experience… “Rabbit Hole” could easily have been maudlin, grim or exploitative, and it is none of those things. It is sensitive, considerate, and, in the end, not entirely persuasive. …
—A.O. Scott, The New York Times
…[4/4] intensely moving… powerful, first-rate drama does something few films these days manage. It made me think. …
—Chris Knight, National Post
…[3½/4] The film sets us up to judge and then upends those judgments. It’s a long journey back, the movie suggests, and any means you use to get out of that hole is allowed. That message, this script and these actors make “Rabbit Hole” one of the best films of 2010. …
—Roger Moore, Orlando Sentinel
…A beautifully acted study of a married couple emerging from the paralysis of grief… “Rabbit Hole” is absorbing and hugely compelling, a thoughtful portrayal of the myriad ways in which we learn to deal with the unthinkable. You just have to learn to bear the weight.
—Rene Rodriguez, The Miami Herald
…“Rabbit Hole” is a story that plunges through the inky blackness of grief … and swims to the surface again. It is, in the end, a hopeful story, one that insists that even after the most terrible of tragedies life can level out. …
—Paul Asay, Plugged In
…[2/5] The sheer excruciating, stultifying good taste of this movie is almost unbearable… The film is well-intentioned, but specious and inauthentic. …
