‘The Woman in the Window’ – Everything We Know So Far
The upcoming movie, The Woman in the Window is a mystery thriller inspired by the 2018-thriller novel with the same title by A. J. Finn. The message is simple – curiosity is one of the biggest boons and vices for our-kind.
The Plot of The Woman in the Window
The Woman in the Window features the female protagonist – Anna Fox who prefers being alone. Anna is a drunk addict and tries to overcome her anxiety by taking pills. She also suffers from severe agoraphobia that prevents her from leaving the house.
Anna being housebound and drunk spends her days spying on her neighbors, until one day she witnesses an attack in the window of Russell’s home that no one believed her. Anna takes a path that is intensely exciting and highly mysterious. The thriller presents an almost otherworldly premise which sounds like something supernatural.
Anna’s life begins to turn upside down when she attempts to report what she saw, and soon everything is being questioned: Is Anna being hallucinated? Is it alcohol and pills? Or is there a reason no one wants to believe her. The Woman in the Window seems similar to Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window where a photographer spying on his neighbors witnessed a crime.
