Consensus: It's often painful to watch, but Rabbit Hole's finely written script and convincing performances make it worth the effort.

Time Out

The problem with 'Rabbit Hole' is that it plays at one unrelentingly gloomy frequency: occasional moments of humour or tension are simply unable to puncture the overriding sense of oppressive sadness.

Rabbit Hole is a beautiful examination of relationships. It exceeds normal genre expectations and has some fantastic acting.
