What's great about Nicole Kidman is that she's always choose such cheery, fun, lighthearted projects: Margot at the Wedding, Hours, Birth, The Human Stain, The Invasion and The Interpreter, for instance. You can always count on a Nicole Kidman movie to bring you right out of a depressive funk. I thought I heard she was retiring, but she's now got five projects on her plate, including the happy-go-lucky, The Need, in which she and Naomi Watts play a therapist and her suicidal patient, who is having an affair with the therapist's husband.

Her latest project is another in a series of pick-me-uppers, Down the Rabbit Hole. She's play opposite Aaron Eckhart, as a husband and wife disrupted by tragedy when their son dies. It follows the emotional journey they must take to regain their happiness. Sounds like the feel-good movie of the year. John Cameron-Mitchell will direct, working off of David Lindsey-Abaire's script, adapted from his own stage play. Eckhart, who is shooting The Rum Diary, opposite Johnny Depp's Hunter Thompson, will take up the movie after Battle: Los Angeles (described as an L.A. version of Cloverfield and Brand New Day, a romantic drama also starring Jenifer Aniston, in which he has to come to terms with the death of his wife. Happy days!
