The Woman in the Window ★★

“My son is fifteen and a half years old!” -Gary Oldman

Not going to call this “Brian De Palma’s PANIC ROOM” or anything crazy like that but Joe Wright is the right kind of hack for this material—his perfume-ad flourishes make the already stilted thriller logic seem almost Brechtian, while still unintentionally choppy as hell. Amy Adams has a body in the trunk and a brick on the gas from the word Go, this is like 400% of the FDA’s Recommended Daily Allowance of Amy Adams.
