Today a new UK trailer and quad poster from John Cameron Mitchell
‘s emotional drama Rabbit Hole
have been released.
is a vivid, hopeful, honest and unexpectedly witty portrait of a family searching for what remains possible in the most impossible of all situations.
Becca and Howie Corbett (Nicole Kidman
and Aaron Eckhart
) are returning to their everyday existence in the wake of a shocking, sudden loss. Just eight months ago, they were a happy suburban family with everything they wanted. Now, they are caught in a maze of memory, longing, guilt, recrimination, sarcasm and tightly controlled rage from which they cannot escape. While Becca finds pain in the familiar, Howie finds comfort.
The shifts come in abrupt, unforeseen moments. Becca hesitantly opens up to her opinionated, loving mother (Dianne Wiest
) and secretly reaches out to the teenager involved in the accident that changed everything (Miles Teller
); while Howie lashes out and imagines solace with another woman (Sandra Oh
). Yet, as off track as they are, the couple keeps trying to find their way back to a life that still holds the potential for beauty, laughter and happiness. The resulting journey is an intimate glimpse into two people learning to re-engage with each other and a world that has been tilted off its axis.
Kidman has admitted that she is too deeply affected by the subject matter of Rabbit Hole
to see the film again. She said that she feels uncomfortable with the material as it brings her own “fear of loss” to life.
“I still can’t even watch some of the scenes because they affect me so deeply and I’ve never had that [happen] with a film before. Because I’m a producer, I’ve seen this film a number of times. I probably won’t see the film again, if that makes any sense,”
she told the Huffington Post.
“I watch two scenes and I’m like, ‘Ugghhh’, because it still affects me so deeply. So I think that’s the power of parenting and playing this role.”
Kidman went on to say that she is scared of falling back into the frame of mind that she inhabited while shooting the project.
The film is released 4th February 2011. in the UK
