Trailer and Oscar Watch: Rabbit Hole, Kidman, on Road to Awards

Thompson on Hollywood

It’s all in the Lionsgate trailer (below). Toronto hit Rabbit Hole may look like another bereaved parent drama, but as adapted by David Lindsay-Abaire from his Pulitzer-prize-winning play, directed by John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig & the Angry Inch), and acted by Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart and Dianne Wiest, it’s a stunning piece of work. While the movie doesn’t open until December 17, I think this one will go all the way: critics groups, Golden Globes, Guilds, Oscars: picture, adapted screenplay, actress, supporting actress.

Here’s The Playlist review.

I really agree with you.
Rabbit Hole is one of the best film of the year.


Hmmm. I loved the film and think the trailer is waaay too heavy. One of the things I think is great about the film is the light touch it achieves despite some moments of heaviness. It felt REAL; this trailer is looking for big emotional reveals, but what makes them work in the film is the even-handedness of the tone. I’m sure it is hard to pull that off in a trailer, but I’m not sure many people will be lining up based on this– it just seems too sad, which the movie is not.
