Rabbit Hole, movie

Just watched Rabbit Hole, the movie, with Nicole Kidman, Aaron Eckhart and Dianna Weist directed by John Cameron Mitchel, Screenplay by David Lindsay-Abaire. Nicole Kidman won Academy Award Nominee for Best Performance by an Actress in a Leading Role. Like Meryl Streep and Maggie Smith, Nicole Kidman is an extraordinary actress. In this role she plays Becca, a mother who has lost her child. Aaron Eckhart is amazing as the confused and loving husband and bereaved father, Howie. Everything about the movie is true from the little I know clinically sitting as I have with such parents whose grief never really heals. Dianne Weiss, as Becca's mother, has lost her son as a man. Her summary of the grief a parent experiences with the loss of a child is poignant. Truly one of the most moving movies I've seen.
