Incredibly engrossing and believable film about a young couple dealing with the death of their son. The story is told in scenes that reveal a little bit more about each of the characters and how they handle stress as it goes along. Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart are superb. The ending scenes are beautifully shot and a perfect resolution for both main characters.

"Rabbit Hole" won Broadway's Tony Award for Best Play, and the 2007 Pulitzer Prize for Drama. Screenplay written by the playwright David Lindsay-Abaire who also wrote "Shrek, the Musical" and "SpiderMan 4." Nicole Kidman bought the script and her company produced it. Who would have imagined this as the next film for the director of "Hedwig and the Angry Inch" and "Shortbus."
