Rabbit Hole

Rabbit Hole is the new film from John Cameron Mitchell (Shortbus, Hedwig and the Angry Itch) based on the Pulitzer Prize winning play by David Lindsay Abaire. Rabbit Hole stars Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart, with a supporting cast that includes two-time Oscar winner Dianne Wiest, Sandra Oh, Tammy Blanchard, Jon Tenney, Giancarlo Esposito and newcomer Miles Teller.

Set in the suburbs of America, Rabbit Hole tells the story of Becca and Howie Corbett, a married couple struggling to return to their everyday existence several months after the loss of their child. Becca and Howie embark on separate journeys, making increasingly unexpected choices that threaten to pull them apart. Distancing herself from her family and her own emotions, Becca begins to surreptitiously follow a local teenage boy with whom she shares an unexplained connection. Howie clings wholeheartedly onto his memories and places his faith in the everyday routines of life, but an acquaintance at a group therapy session offers a more unconventional method of dealing with his feelings.

With their world tilted off of its axis, the couple must decide whether to allow their increasingly fractured personal journeys to bring them back together. Rabbit Hole is a vivid, honest and unexpectedly funny portrait of a family searching for what remains possible in the most impossible of situations
