Anna Fox (Amy Adams) is an agoraphobic woman and former child psychologist living alone in Harlem, New York. Following a traumatic experience, she finds herself unable to venture outside her house, despite the fact that her husband and daughter, Ed (Anthony Mackie) and Olivia (Mariah Bozeman), have since left, and spends her days watching Hitchcock movies whilst drinking and waiting for the next in her sequence of prescription pills to roll around. The Russell family, comprised of father Alistair (Gary Oldman), mother Jane (Julianne Moore) and teenage son, Ethan (Fred Hechinger), move in opposite Anna, with both Ethan and his mother visiting her to introduce themselves. A while later, however, Anna looks outside of her window and believes that she sees Jane be brutally stabbed to death inside her own home. Despite a series of strange occurrences that follow the act, the police insist that she hallucinated the whole thing. To determine what truly happened to Jane, Anna will have to open herself up to the own past she keeps painfully hidden away. 'The Woman in the Window' is directed by Joe Wright ('Pride and Prejudice', 'Anna Karenina', 'Black Mirror: Nosedive'). Based on the novel of the same name by A.J. Finn, it has been adapted for screen by Tracy Letts.
