NOW CLOSED: Movie Reviewers: Go and see Rabbit Hole on Sun 30th January (screenings in Edinburgh, Bath, Brighton, Southampton, Norwich), add your review to Mumsnet - you could win an annual Cineworld Pass

We've been asked by the makers of the new Nicole Kidman film, Rabbit Hole, to find Mumsnetters who would like to go and see a preview screening and to then add a review on Mumsnet. You can take a friend.

Here's the synoposis of the film:
"Nicole Kidman returns to the big screen with a stunning Golden Globe nominated performance. Hotly tipped for success in the up-coming awards season, RABBIT HOLE co-stars Aaron Eckhart and Academy Award winner Dianne Wiest in the story of a married couple coming to terms with an unexpected loss.
"RABBIT HOLE is the new film from John Cameron Mitchell (Shortbus, Hedwig and the Angry Itch), based on the Pulitzer Prize winning play by David Lindsay Abaire.
"Set in the suburbs of America, RABBIT HOLE tells the story of Becca and Howie Corbett, a married couple struggling to return to their everyday existence several months after the loss of their child. Becca and Howie embark on separate journeys, making increasingly unexpected choices that threaten to pull them apart.
"Distancing herself from her family and her own emotions, Becca begins to surreptitiously follow a local teenage boy with whom she shares an unexplained connection. Howie clings wholeheartedly onto his memories and places his faith in the everyday routines of life, but an acquaintance at a group therapy session offers a more unconventional method of dealing with his feelings.
"With their world tilted off of its axis, the couple must decide whether to allow their increasingly fractured personal journeys to bring them back together. Rabbit Hole is a vivid, honest and unexpectedly funny portrait of a family searching for what remains possible in the most impossible of situations."

JenniferMumsnet has already seen the film and says "I loved it - its a very sensitive portrayal of a couple handling the death of their child - think Ordinary People but much much better - its not a weepy but very thought provoking".

3. You will need to email the organisers who will email you back with tickets to print off. If you're unable to print them off they will have your name on the door.
4. After the screening MN will email you with a link to the feedback thread.

All we ask is that you go along to the screening and then add your review to a special thread on Mumsnet (you will be emailed a link).

Everyone who adds a review will be entered into a prize draw where one lucky winner will win a Cineworld Annual pass for 2 - with unlimited tickets plus we have 5 pairs of tickets for runners up.

Thanks

Would love to apply for this - going to the cinema in the daytime is truly decadent - but am too far away.

sad

I'm surprised there's not a venue more accessible to the Midlands/North.

deemented Tue 18-Jan-11 14:28:44

Ah, that's a shame - theres none in Wales and i would have loved to have gone.

solo Tue 18-Jan-11 15:07:55

Shame, but I can't do the trip on a Sunday that early. Sounds good though.

Fimbo Tue 18-Jan-11 16:24:11

I have applied, it's also my birthday that day! grin

aristocat Tue 18-Jan-11 16:29:19

would love this too, but too far away sad

ethelina Tue 18-Jan-11 16:35:25

Would have loved to do this but nearest over 90 minutes awaysad. Luck of the draw I spose, maybe next time...

grumpypants Tue 18-Jan-11 16:52:34

would so NOT want to do this - sounds way too sad from what I've read.

4andnotout Tue 18-Jan-11 17:11:04

Finally something I could get to without too much travel, nice to see something in Norfolk.

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 18-Jan-11 17:51:16

Sorry to those who'd like to go but it is too far...

Tortington Tue 18-Jan-11 18:01:47

it would be much better if popcorn was included [hopeful]

CheeryCherry Tue 18-Jan-11 19:27:16

Too far away, nowhere in the north of England...sad

BodyOfEeyore Tue 18-Jan-11 19:28:01

It does sound sad. Considering recent over-reactions to the EastEnders storyline, I am surprised that MN is running this!

Goober Tue 18-Jan-11 19:51:16

What no Ipswich???
Pahhh!!

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 18-Jan-11 20:07:31

bodyofeeyore - do see Justines message on this thread about that issue

What about good old Birmingham, second city hmm hmmm?

ohmeohmy Wed 19-Jan-11 14:52:00

I'd like to go- london please

alythonian Wed 19-Jan-11 17:04:06

travellingwilbury Wed 19-Jan-11 18:00:45

I work sunday mornings unfortunately so can't do this .

We could give tickets to Bryan Kirkwood so he can see how it should be done wink

denjen Thu 20-Jan-11 09:57:41

For Times readers who are members their are free tickets in most areas

Swaliswan Thu 20-Jan-11 13:35:39

I'd like to go to the Southampton showing but I don't suppose they'll let me take a 6 week old baby in with me sad

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 20-Jan-11 17:06:32

Swaliswan - I'm checking for you and will PM you as well as post on here their response. Thanks for your interest!

gorionine Fri 21-Jan-11 06:51:58

Nothing arround were I amsad

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 21-Jan-11 09:18:17

Hi Swaliswan - we checked and the film promoter is more than happy for you to take your 6 week old baby to the screening. The cinema management in Southampton have basically asked (with respect) that you sit in an aisle seat and that, in consideration for other people at the screening, take baby out should he/she make an uncontrollable racket wink! I'm sure you would have anyway but am passing on what they said. Any questions please let me know.

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 21-Jan-11 11:46:57

Also - just received this link to the facebook page for the film - you can check out the trailer by clicking here smile

Coca Fri 21-Jan-11 15:04:01

When wil we find out if we have been picked? smile

LacksDaisies Fri 21-Jan-11 21:04:13

<churlish>

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Sat 22-Jan-11 09:32:36

Kalsha Fri 28-Jan-11 10:06:30

I got the email with tickets but unfortunatley just found out that I can't go. Would I be able to give these tickets to my hubby and son who are going to be in London that day anyway? Is this just a mums event - then they might feel odd! Will they have a list of names at the door? Thanks.

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 28-Jan-11 14:19:43

Kalsha - that's ok, but I think it is a 12 certificate if your son is the right age

noushi Fri 28-Jan-11 14:49:01

I sent my email but havnt recieved my tickets yet!!

noushi Fri 28-Jan-11 17:34:55

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 28-Jan-11 19:30:41

I absolutely loved this film. Nicole Kidman and the lead man (sorry his name escapes me) were fantastic. Thank you so much Ann, mumsnet and everyone involved, my friend and I had a lovely time.

Guadalupe Sun 30-Jan-11 20:47:40

Me too, I thought it was great. Extremely harrowing but an excellent film. I took my mum and she was trying not to cry all the way through. I steeled myself and just about managed. grin

Thanks for the free tickets. By chance a friend's daughter was working in the cafe so we got free coffees too!

Will do the review tomorrow if the link is up.
