The Woman in the Window is a 2021 American psychological thriller film directed by Joe Wright from a screenplay by Tracy Letts, based on the 2018 novel of the same name by pseudonymous author A. J. Finn. The film follows an agoraphobic woman (Amy Adams) who begins to spy on her new neighbors (Gary Oldman, Fred Hechinger, and Julianne Moore) and is witness to a crime in their apartment. Anthony Mackie, Wyatt Russell, Brian Tyree Henry, and Jennifer Jason Leigh also star.


Child psychologist Anna Fox lives alone in a Manhattan brownstone apartment after becoming separated from her husband Edward; he lives away with their daughter Olivia, but she talks to them on a daily basis. Anna suffers from agoraphobia and her housebound state leads her to observe all of her neighbors from a second-story window, including the Russell family who recently moved in across the street. She also takes a large number of medications and drinks alcohol daily.

One evening, Jane Russell visits Anna and they befriend one another. She also meets Ethan, Jane’s teenage son, who admits his father Alistair is abusive. One night, Anna witnesses Jane being stabbed to death in the living room. She contacts the police but they do not believe her, claiming everyone in the family is fine. Alistair arrives along with “Jane” who, to the shock of Anna, is a different woman to the one she met. She begins spying on the Russell family.

Anna’s tenant David lives in her basement, and claims he did not hear or see anything, though she learns David was once in prison and broke his parole conditions. She receives an anonymous e-mail with a photo of her sleeping. She contacts the detectives again, who are joined by the Russells and David, and has a nervous breakdown. It is revealed that Edward and Olivia are dead as a result of a car crash that Anna accidentally caused; she is now agoraphobic as a result and her medication causes her to have hallucinations and conversations with people who are not really there.

Anna apologizes to the Russell family and stops pursuing her suspicions. She records a video on her cell phone, planning to commit suicide by overdose. She then discovers a photograph she took of her cat and, in the reflection of a wine glass, is the original Jane, proving she is real. Anna shows David the photo and he confesses the original Jane she met is a woman named Katie Melli, Ethan’s birth mother. Katie had been stalking the Russell family, trying to get close to Ethan, hence they had to move. David refuses to help Anna prove the truth when he is suddenly attacked by Ethan, who had been lurking inside.

Ethan reveals to Anna that he murdered Katie and is a budding serial killer, having also killed Alistair’s secretary in Boston, and now intends to kill Anna. He had been letting himself into her apartment all week with a stolen key, and he was the one who took the photo of her sleeping. Anna flees to the roof where they fight until she pushes Ethan through the skylight to his death.

As Anna recovers in the hospital, Detective Little states they have arrested Alistair and Jane for helping Ethan cover up Katie’s murder. Little admits he watched Anna’s suicide video but hands back her phone to allow her to delete it before she has to return it as evidence. He apologizes for not believing her.
