Rolling Stone

By Peter Travers
Nicole Kidman is just astonishing in Rabbit Hole - subtle, fierce, brutally funny, tender when you least expect it, and battered by the feelings that hit her when she forgets to duck.

Boston Globe

By Ty Burr
Rabbit Hole is a personal project for Kidman - she produced the film after falling in love with the play - and it seems to have revived the quickness in her. That ice-blue gaze has found its focus again, and it looks deep into the one thing none of us want to face.

USA Today

By Claudia Puig
Profound and superbly acted, with a moving script superbly adapted from David Lindsay-Abaire's Pulitzer-winning play.

Movieline

By Stephanie Zacharek
Director John Cameron Mitchell - adapting David Lindsay-Abaire's play - has a surprisingly deft touch with this admittedly downbeat material; he builds dramatic intensity in subtle layers, rather than slapping it on with a trowel.

Wall Street Journal

By Joe Morgenstern
Nicole Kidman places the bereaved heroine of Rabbit Hole in a nether land between life and not-quite-life. Her beautiful performance transcends the specifics of the script, which David Lindsay-Abaire adapted from his play of the same name.

Entertainment Weekly

By Owen Gleiberman
Eckhart shows a new kind of foreboding anger. He's powerful as a man who will do anything to crack the ice.

By Kirk Honeycutt
The film does achieve moments of catharsis, but it can be heavy going.

San Francisco Chronicle

By Mick LaSalle
As a viewing experience, the film is by turns heartrending and stultifying, but mostly stultifying.

New York Daily News

By Joe Neumaier
Kidman is able to draw you in even as the movie's solemn, morbid obviousness wears you out.
