“She has nothing to prove but what’s real"”

Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Anna Fox (Amy Adams) is an agoraphobic child psychologist who finds herself keeping tabs on the picture perfect family across the street through the windows of her New York City brownstone. Her life is turned upside down when she inadvertently witnesses a brutal crime.

They’re all hiding something. In “The Woman in the Window,” a psychological suspense thriller directed by Joe Wright, an agoraphobic child psychologist befriends a neighbor across the street from her New York City brownstone, only to see her own life turned upside down when the woman disappears and she suspects foul play. A stellar ensemble cast brings Tracy Letts’ screenplay based on the gripping, best-selling novel to life, where shocking secrets are revealed, and no one—and nothing—is what it seems.

Anna Fox lives alone in the New York City brownstone that once housed her happy family. She suffers from agoraphobia and is separated from her husband and daughter. She spends her days chatting on-line with strangers, watching old movies, drinking to excess and spying on her neighbors. This gets interesting when the Russell clan moves in next door. Watching the bond between the parents and their teen son makes her long for her own reunion with her own family, but that changes when she observes what seems to be a shocking act of violence. The housebound woman must confront what she saw, or whether she has become unhinged.

This film is an adaptation of A.J. Finn’s best-selling novel, which has sold more than 1 million copies sold in the United States, the novel has additionally topped the best-seller charts in multiple countries and is currently published in 38 languages.”
