Thompson on Hollywood

Lionsgate's Rabbit Hole opens December 17 and just released a new poster and clips (below). The film has just been nominated for four Indie Spirit Awards, including John Cameron Mitchell (Best Director), David Lindsay-Abaire (Best Screenplay), and Nicole Kidman (Best Female Lead) and Aaron Eckhart (Best Male Lead), boosting its Oscar buzz. I listened to Mitchell and Eckhart's Q & A at the AFI's enthusiastically applauded screening on November 8. Mitchell said that if a piece of art deals with a heavy subject matter, it ideally should contribute to someone’s ability to deal with - not just reinforce - the misery of the situation. “Hopefully this [film] is a set of tools in learning how to deal with this,” he said, hoping that none of us experience the loss of a child but recognizing that we all inevitably deal with death. “That’s what art is for,” he said, “you watch someone else going through it and you’re able to purge it by proxy. Art can cleanse you by going through the rabbit hole and coming back to the light.”
