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".

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.

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.

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

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.
