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.
