1[re Rabbit Hole (2010)] There are no words in the climax of the movie, and in the play there are only words. The sister character in the play is a source of comic relief, which is helpful in a play about the death of a child. But her part in film was cut away, and that concerned me. Not until I saw the film with an audience did I realize there's all this new stuff that got laughs that I didn't know was there. When I sat in a Broadway house, I knew where all the laughs were.
