Rabbit Hole

Posted by Phil On January - 30 - 2011

Just saw this on a preview.

A film about a couple who’ve lost their son.  This sounds like it could be a cue for a maudlin over-the-top emotional tearjerker.  …and it is a Hollywood movie, so the signs aren’t good.

But  this is a actually a hopeful positive film. OK I must admit there was the occasional tear (from me that is), but  the acting is so restrained and the the script feels so genuine that I wondered if the writer David Lindsay-Abaire had suffered a similar loss.  But no .. it is a fiction …thought the director John Cameron Mitchell had lost a brother so maybe that provided an empathetic insight.

Go see it as a beautiful example of how fictional drama can teach us something about ourselves and our relationships.
