Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart In “Rabbit Hole” – First Images


“Rabbit Hole,” starring Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart, is an adaptation of David Lindsay-Abaire’s Pulitzer prize-winning drama about a fraying family.

The story traces the life of a happily married couple that is disrupted by an unexpected tragedy and the emotional journey they must undertake to regain happiness.

Kidman plays a suburban mother dealing with the loss of a child. Eckhart will play Kidman’s husband, who is trying to hold on to the memory of his dead son while dealing with his emotionally removed wife.

With a budget of less than $10 million, a brisk 28-day shoot “Rabbit Hole” is more like an indie than a Hollywood production.


“This is a passion project for Nicole,” Eckhart said, “The reason why I’m in the movie is Nicole. If she wants to work with somebody, then that’s what happens.”

“When I first responded to it, it was because I read it, and it was about grief, which fascinates me,” Kidman said. “Loss and love seem to be themes that run through my work.”

This film is about “a marriage and the way that people fuse through pain, that you can either be pulled apart or you can come together. In the same way that ‘Birth,’ a film that I did, was about loss of the loved one who’s your partner in life, this is the most profound loss, and it’s the worst place to tread. And so my nature tends to be to explore something that I’m terrified of.” [source:]

The movie is directed by John Cameron Mitchell from the script which Lindsay-Abaire adapted from his own stage play. Sam Raimi was actually attached to direct, but dropped out to do “Spider-Man 4.”

“Rabbit Hole” also stars Dianne Wiest, Tammy Blanchard, Sandra Oh, Giancarlo Esposito and Jon Tenney.

Sex scenes make Aaron Eckhart squirm

Aaron Eckhart

Aaron Eckhart felt awkward during his sex scenes in upcoming film Towelhead – because his co-star Summer Bishil found them funny.

The Dark Knight star plays a bigoted reserve soldier in the controversial movie, which tells the story of an Arab-American girl’s encounter with racism after her family moves to a Texas town.

She conducts an affair with her neighbor, played by Eckhart – but he hated filming their intense sex scenes because Bishil joked her way through them.

He tells, “Those were difficult times for me. The way I did it was to really trust (director) Alan (Ball). It was in the words. I really trusted Summer, and I tried to get her to trust me, to build a relationship when we were doing physical scenes. We’d really rehearse them mechanically, and I’d say, “OK, I’m going to put my hand here, I’m going to do this”. She was so good-humoured about the whole thing and well-adjusted – I think I found it more difficult.”
