Nicole Kidman has been racking up the awards buzz at TIFF for her performance in Rabbit Hole, and you can finally (maybe) see what all the fuss is about in two new clips from the film. Lionsgate recently picked up the drama, which centers on Kidman and co-star Aaron Eckhart as “a husband and wife who fight to save their marriage in the life that begins again after tragedy.” Sandra Oh and Dianne Wiest also star in the latest from John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch). Check out the clips after the jump.
The TIFF synopsis for Rabbit Hole:
A family navigates the deepest form of loss in John Cameron Mitchell’s screen adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize winning play by David Lindsay-Abaire. Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart deliver captivating performances as a husband and wife who fight to save their marriage in the life that begins again after tragedy.
That awards buzz? I don’t see it in these clips, which obviously doesn’t mean it’s not justified by the whole of the film. Admittedly, I’m a bit wary to let my guard down with Kidman, just because I haven’t liked anything she’s done since Dogville. 2003. I hope Rabbit Hole can bring me back to the side of the righteous.
