The Woman in the Window - Cinema, Movie, Film Review

WATCH: Everyone is a suspect in the Woman in the Window trailer

Amy Adams plays a woman with agoraphobia in The Woman in the Window. To view these characters I love brought to life for the first time is wonderful.

Anna believes the woman who was murdered was her friend and neighbour Jane (Julianne Moore), but things take a turn when she is told Jane is alive and well - only now she looks like a completely different woman (Jennifer Jason Leigh).

Amy Adams stars as Anna Fox, an agoraphobic psychologist who appears to witness the murder of a woman (through a window). Although she still can not leave the house, she finds comfort in being able to look out her window.

One night, a scream draws Anna to her window and she sees Jane being stabbed to death in her apartment across the street.

The pair bellow about their relationships, with Jane confessing she her marriage is "sophisticated" after laughing off the reality she's carrying a pair of damaged-down earrings proficient to her by an ex. Soon thereafter another woman comes in and introduces herself as Jane. It seems like a knock-off of Rear Window mixed with A Simple Favor, but nowhere near as fun as those two movies.

Amy Adams attends the 24th annual Critics' Choice Awards on January 13, 2019 in Santa Monica, California.

As Moore's character points out to Adams, she really shouldn't be taking her meds with alcohol. Please read the book and let the excitement grow for the film. The film was one of the 20th Century Fox titles in limbo after Disney's purchase of the studio, but the movie is still set to be released in theaters on May 15, 2020.
