Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Tom Huddleston, Time Out
"As heavy, stressful, relentlessly sad dramas go, this one goes quite well."
‑ Tom Long, Detroit News
"Rabbit Hole is a beautiful examination of relationships. It exceeds normal genre expectations and has some fantastic acting."
‑ Blake Griffin, We Got This Covered
"John Cameron Mitchell's "Rabbit Hole" is a heart-breaking, somewhat depressing film that deals with one of the worst tragedies a couple can face. It is also one of the best films of the year."
‑ Jeff Beck, Examiner.com
"Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart give marvelous, shaded performances of grief-stricken parents attempting to move on without forgetting their pain."
‑ Wesley Lovell, Cinema Sight
"For all its sympathy and intelligence, Rabbit Hole is ultimately too safe an experience for such a free-form tragedy."
‑ Peter Rainer, Christian Science Monitor
"John Cameron Mitchell directed, making an impressive detour in style and subject matter after his flamboyant Shortbus and Hedwig and the Angry Inch."
‑ J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader
"In a tale of tragic loss, unexpected friendships, and finding happiness in whatever that may be, RABBIT HOLE scores big."
‑ Chase Whale, Gordon and the Whale
"Contrived and manipulative"
‑ Dan Jardine, Daily-Reviews
"The actors don't flinch from the task and there is hope at the end, though it may feel like small reward after so much digging."
‑ Stella Papamichael, Digital Spy
"Rabbit Hole, directed with grace and surprising humor by John Cameron Mitchell, is a delicate tale that shares a great deal of the hurt of Robert Redford's Ordinary People."
‑ Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post
"A tough, raw drama about wounds that heal only gradually, if at all."
‑ Calvin Wilson, St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Rabbit Hole is hardly what you'd call a date movie, and it's difficult to see what kind of audiences it'd appeal to outside of awards season chin-strokers."
‑ Ali Gray, TheShiznit.co.uk
"Un drama íntimo y conmovedor, narrado con sobriedad, sin golpes bajos y con una profunda empatía y cariño por sus personajes. Dentro de un notable elenco se destacan las actuaciones de Nicole Kidman y Dianne Wiest."
‑ Enrique Buchichio, Uruguay Total
"Doesn't quite make the leap from stage to screen with all its power"
‑ Robert Denerstein, Movie Habit
