Rabbit Hole

I was blown away by director Marc Forster's first feature, Everything Put Together, which he did before Monster's Ball, but it's about the emotion-sapping grief of a baby dying of SIDS, and there's no way I can imagine watching it now. [I told him as much, and he seemed OK with it, so that's a relief. But anyway...]

I can understand if you wouldn't want to see "Rabbit Hole," a new play by David Lindsay-Abaire that just opened on Broadway about family in the wake of a little boy's accidental death. But you should at least read the review. I can't think when I 've seen such praise for emotional honesty in both acting and writing. Pretty amazing stuff.

I hear ya, Greg. Since becoming a Daddy, I can't bring myself to see films or plays dealing with the death of a child. It's too nightmarish to think about. That's one of the reasons I won't see George Clooney's "Syriana."

[no kidding, although we went to see it. The trailers were worse than the movie, kid-death-wise. -ed.]
