Rabbit Hole Preview/Synopsis

December 17th ( wide on the 25th )

Directed by John Cameron Mitchell ( Hedwig The Angry Inch ) Starring Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart, Diane Wiest, Sandra Oh, Giancarlo Esposito, Tammy Blanchard, Jon Tenny. Cinematography by Frank G. DeMarco ( The Winning Season ) Edited by Joe Klotz ( Precious, Grace Is Gone ) Original score by Anton Sanko ( TV's Big Love )

Becca and Howie Corbett are a happily married couple whose perfect world is forever changed when their young son, Danny, is killed by a car. Becca, an executive-turned-stay-at-home mother, tries to redefine her existence in a surreal landscape of well-meaning family and friends. Painful, poignant, and often funny, Becca's experiences lead her to find solace in a mysterious relationship with a troubled young comic-book artist, Jason - the teenage driver of the car that killed Danny. Becca's fixation with Jason pulls her away from memories of Danny, while Howie immerses himself in the past, seeking refuge in outsiders who offer him something Becca is unable to give. The Corbetts, both adrift, make surprising and dangerous choices as they choose a path that will determine their fate.

Rated PG-13 for thematic material, some drug use and language. 91 min.

Oscar chances ? Very good for Kidman, who has already earned Golden Globe and SAG nominations for this performance thus far. Wiest has an outside chance at a supporting actress nod, though she has been relatively shut out in the precursor awards, but you just never know.

Started to really pay attention to film ( movies ) what was going on in front of the camera, but more interestingly, behind it as well at about as far back as age 10. Motion pictures ( when good ) are a fascinating medium. All the work and prep that goes into filmmaking. It's an amazing process !
