The other day while at dinner, my mother asks in casual conversation if there are any movies out that I want to see. I of course bring up 'The Rabbit Hole'. While I was explaining what it was about and why I wanted to see it, I could see in my mom's face that she already lost interest and gave me the "i-dont-want-to-hear-anymore-about-dead-babies" look. I honestly thought she had stopped listening and was just robotically nodding her head. And as quickly as the subject was brought up, it passed.
Then today I get a call in the morning from my mom to turn on the TV to channel 7. And that Nichole Kidman was being interviewed and that she was talking about 'The Rabbit Hole'. Its such a small gesture, but it meant a lot to me that she remembered and then even called me to have me see it because she knew it interested me. I just hope its not one step forward and three backwards here. I hope that this is the start of her acknowledging what is important to me. Heck...its taken almost 4 yrs, its about time.
