194. January 31, 2011 - Rabbit Hole (2010)

This reminded me of 21 Grams, just less soul-crushing. In fact, by the end it's sort of hopeful in a weird way. Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart are impressive in the way they portray parents dealing with the death of their child in very different ways. I felt that all the stuff with the extended family (overbearing mother and pregnant sister) was unnecessary and cluttering, but Dianne Wiest was believable as the borderline alcoholic mother who can't deal with the death of her own son, let alone her grandson. Nicole Kidman is solid, but no one is going to win Best Actress over Natalie Portman for Black Swan.
My Netflix rating: 4 stars
