Books at the Box Office: The Woman in the Window

I feel like books and movies never started getting pushed back until I started getting excited for them, so as I write this in April, I am hopeful,so hopeful, that The Women in the Window adaptation actually comes out this May (JK I JUST READ IT HAS BEEN DELAYED INDEFINITELY WHAT DID I DO TO DESERVE THIS). Fingers crossed! I definitely want to see this in theatres, with lots of people, because seeing The Invisible Man like that was an EXPERIENCE, ya know?

Also, The Woman in the Window is one of those books where I remember EXACTLY where I was when I was reading it. It was my senior year of college, February-ish. I was reading it on the train into NYC for my internship ,and  I often go to the office a little earlier than most because that’s just how the schedule went, and I was reading the book and I got to THAT page (I think it was X73…maybe 273..) and I SCREAMED at my desk and the mail guy came running around the corner because he thought I was dying haha. I’ve been waiting for this for so long! The initial movie release was October 2019, then it got moved back because of audience feedback, but I AM READY for this, so give it to me.

Also, no, Im not even touching how weird the author is…trying to separate that from the story, haha.

Anyway, the book, from Amazon:

It isn’t paranoia if it’s really happening . . .

Anna Fox lives alone—a recluse in her New York City home, unable to venture outside. She spends her day drinking wine (maybe too much), watching old movies, recalling happier times . . . and spying on her neighbors.

Then the Russells move into the house across the way: a father, a mother, their teenage son. The perfect family. But when Anna, gazing out her window one night, sees something she shouldn’t, her world begins to crumble—and its shocking secrets are laid bare.

What is real? What is imagined? Who is in danger? Who is in control? In this diabolically gripping thriller, no one—and nothing—is what it seems.

Now, the movie:

Okay, this movie is like STAR-STUDDED.Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, Gary Oldman, Anthony Mackie, directed by Joe Wright (2005 P&P, Darkest Hour, Atonement) screenplay by Tracy Letts, what the heck? Why CAN I NOT SEE THIS NOW?????
