Story: The story follows an agoraphobic psychologist, Amy Adams, who befriends a neighbor Jane Russell and her son who are apparently being abused by Jane’s husband. However, his life is turned upside down when he sees Jane murdered, but no one believes her as Mr. Russell presents a different situation. Jane in front of the police.
Review: Directed by Joe Wright, based on the 2018 novel by JA Finns, The Woman in the Window, the film follows many other thrillers in the genre, with a leading woman overcoming her inner demons while experiencing traumatic events. The film also features a roster of talented cast members including Amy Adams, Gary Oldman, Julianne Moore, Wyatt Russell, Fred Hechinger, and Jennifer Jason Leigh, but it disappoints audiences in the execution.
Brownstone home on a quiet Harlem block. Anna suffers from acute agoraphobia and chronic anxiety and spends all of her time alone in the house, watching over neighbors and thrillers. His tenant David (Wyatt Russell) appears to be the only person who interacts with anyone other than his psychiatrist making house calls.
Psychologist Anna did not trust her psychiatrist and preferred to use more medicine and a large glass of wine to treat her acute phobia and chronic anxiety disorder, but her quiet life was quickly interrupted by a new family Up. Move to the house across the street from you. Anna is full of doubts about this family. She asked her psychiatrist: “Who will move into the house the next day after painting?” He even tried to track her on the Internet, but couldn’t find anything. When the neighbor’s son Ethan returned home with a lavender scented candle as a gift, their curiosity was overcome.
Soon, Mrs. Jane Russell and her husband Alistair Russell entered the house. Deep down, Anna knew that something was wrong with her family, and when she found that Jane was injured, he screamed. However, after a failed attempt to leave the house, Anna eventually returned home with the two police officers and the entire Russell family, including the new Jane Russell. No one believes what Anna saw, so why do you do this? She is addicted to drugs and alcohol.
While the premise of the story is exciting, the makers spent half of the film simply preparing the story, leaving Anna very little time to investigate, be suspicious of her surroundings, and sabotage her own life. The rest of the film quickly puts the story together. Towards the end, all characters give up the entire story in a monologue, leaving nothing for the audience to experience for themselves. Even the climax scene is best remembered for its negligence. Hell, try a mix of crime and psychological thriller, but neither ends. The lean script gives the talented cast very little time to work, other than long breaks, uncomfortable looks and a lot of yelling. Twists that come out of nowhere because they literally give you nothing to look out for at all. Overall, The Woman in the Window is a shortened version of its predecessors such as The Girl on the Train, AS imple Favor and Things Heard and Seen. It’s best to skip them as there’s not much to experience the film anyway.
