Described by one member of the Esquire editorial team as "very good, if a little wooden at times", Rabbit Hole - adapted from a play by David Lindsay-Abaire - is one to watch in the new year, with Oscar talk already abuzz.
Though the film's stage-based origins are made evident throughout the film (we imagine this is what our staffer meant by "wooden") Rabbit Hole is an elegant, witty take on the nature of loss.
Taking focus on a married couple - played with gusto by Aaron Eckhart and Nicole Kidman - who are struggling to come to terms with the accidental death of their son, the film isn't standard festive fare, but worth a watch nonetheless. Here's a sneak peek.
Rabbit Hole is out in theatres from February 4
