'The Woman In The Window' plot

Agoraphobic child psychologist Anna Fox (Amy Adams) spends her days living in her New York brownstone drinking wine, watching film noirs and developing a fascination with the Russells, the seemingly-perfect family across the street.

Anna develops a friendship with the Russells' 15-year-old son Ethan (Fred Hechinger) as well as with a woman she believes to be Jane (Julianne Moore), Ethan's mother — but one day Anna's life is upended when she witnesses a violent act from her window, and the woman disappears.

Anna is convinced that something terrible has happened, but both Ethan and his father Alistair (Gary Oldman) deny that there is anything wrong, and Detective Little (Brian Tyree Henry) of the NYPD doesn't put much weight on Anna's testimony. 

Anna decides to cut back on her alcohol intake and switch her medications in the hope of making sense of what she saw that night — but when Alistair introduces her to his wife Jane (Jennifer Jason Leigh), Anna begins to doubt her own ludicity...
