I was really looking forward to seeing the latest film from director John Cameron Mitchell (Shortbus, Hedwig and the Angry Inch). I was also excited to hear that he would be directing the movie adaptation of the play Rabbit Hole, which was a piece I'd been wanting to see on stage.
And here it is, starring Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart, who play two parents who have lost a child. It's slow, sombre, and delicate. I'm not sure if you should rush to the theatre to see this, but it's a good film and the performances are good. I don't think it will win any awards, but it's definitely a good try.
