Books on the Big Screen: The Woman in the Window


I had an exciting opportunity a few weeks ago thanks to Netflix Film and BookSparks. I was able to join Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, and others from the cast of The Woman in the Window to learn more about the movie, which is coming to Netflix on May 14th. I was also able to see some exclusive clips as well and I was hooked!




When I first read The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn a few years ago, I was totally absorbed by the thriller. I really enjoyed its Hitchcock and film noir vibe.  I am so excited to see the book come to life on Netflix and from what I saw already, I don't think fans will be disappointed. You can check out the official trailer here.  


 

If you aren't familiar with The Woman in the Window it's about an "agoraphobic woman living alone in New York who begins spying on her new neighbors, only to witness a disturbing act of violence."  When I first read the novel, Anna, played by Amy Adams, was a bit of an unreliable narrator and a bit quirky.  But after living through the pandemic and quarantines, looking out your window and observing the world doesn't seem too far fetched, right?  I wonder how it will feel watching The Woman in the Window through a different lens, especially after stay at home orders.  

 

 

So, are you a fan of The Woman in the Window? Will you watch Netflix's adaptation? If you haven't read the book yet, now is the time!  Let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
