What the Critics say
|Cape Argus / The Star|
Kirk Honeycutt Rewarding deep-dish drama
Paul Boekkooi Fyn studie van verlies en troos boei enduit
Christy Lemire A hole that can't be filled
Pete Hammond It's an unforgettable, moving and brilliantly acted drama that richly deserves to be seen by anyone who cherishes great filmmaking.
|Chicago Sunday Times|
Roger Ebert I knew what the movie would be about, but I was impressed by how it was about it.
Jason Anderson Thanks to its rich vein of wry humour and welcome sense of restraint, Rabbit Hole is largely free of the sentimentality and predictability typical of other movie portraits of damaged folks eager to let the healing begin.
James Berardinelli Those who venture into Rabbit Hole with their expectations properly aligned will leave fulfilled and perhaps with a slightly different perspective on a few things.
Peter Travers Kidman, doing her best work in years, just comes at you. Her final scene with the splendid Wiest, who builds her character with uncommon feeling, is devastating. So is the movie. It takes a piece out of you.
C. Fuchs One of those films you admire, but from a distance
Tomatometer It's often painful to watch, but Rabbit Hole's finely written script and convincing performances make it worth the effort.
