Here is the plot description for “Rabbit Hole”:

“Rabbit Hole” is a vivid, hopeful, honest and unexpectedly witty portrait of a family searching for what remains possible in the most impossible of all situations.

Becca and Howie Corbett (Nicole Kidman and Aaron Eckhart) are returning to their everyday existence in the wake of a shocking, sudden loss. Just eight months ago, they were a happy suburban family with everything they wanted. Now, they are caught in a maze of memory, longing, guilt, recrimination, sarcasm and tightly controlled rage from which they cannot escape. As Becca finds pain in the familiar, Howie finds comfort. The shifts come in abrupt, unforeseen moments.

Becca hesitantly opens up to her opinionated, loving mother (Dianne Wiest) and secretly reaches out to the teenager involved in the accident who changed everything (Miles Teller). Meanwhile, Howie lashes out and imagines solace with another woman (Sandra Oh). As off track as they are, the couple still keeps trying to find their way back to a life that holds the potential for beauty, laughter and happiness. The resulting journey is an intimate glimpse into two people learning to reengage with each other and a world that has been tilted off its axis.

“Rabbit Hole” is directed by John Cameron Mitchell (“Hedwig and the Angry Inch”) from a script by acclaimed playwright David Lindsay-Abaire (adapted from his Pulitzer Prize-winning play). The cast, which is led by Academy Award winner Nicole Kidman (“The Hours”) and Golden Globe nominee Aaron Eckhart, includes two-time Oscar winner Dianne Wiest (“Hannah and Her Sisters,” “Bullets Over Broadway”), Tammy Blanchard, Miles Teller, Giancarlo Esposito, Jon Tenney and Sandra Oh.

“Rabbit Hole” is produced by Olympus Pictures, Blossom Films and OddLot Entertainment. Producers on the project are Leslie Urdang, Dean Vanech, Nicole Kidman, Per Saari and Gigi Pritzker. The executive producers are Daniel Revers, William Lischak, Linda McDonough and Brian O’Shea. Lionsgate presents an Olympic Pictures, Blossom Films and OddLot Entertainment production.

I can’t imagine anyone ever “moving on” entirely after the loss of a child. But surrounding oneself with loved ones and realizing there is still purpose in life would be a start.

For me, it would seem impossible to do that because they will always be there with you.

Child loss

You never move on or past losing a child. All you can do is move forward. At the same time, the loss of a child will follow you all the while.

One could and has to move on

One could and has to move on in a way of remembering and dedicating areas of ones life to that child for the better of others or ones self … Not good to put a burden on a child that has passed .. Celebrate their life and make a difference to others that is what every kid would want .

It’s not natural for a parent or parents to have their child die before they do. I don’t think you ever get over that. You just move forward in life as best as you can.

I don’t think you move on, but you find peace that the child is with God in a better place.
