The Woman in the Window 2021 DVD Cover – Synopsis
Since being estranged from her husband Edward, child psychologist Anna Fox (Amy Adams) lives alone in a Manhattan brownstone apartment; he lives together from their daughter Olivia, but she communicates with them on a regular basis.
Anna is housebound due to agoraphobia, and she observes all of her neighbors from a second-story window, including the Russell family who recently moved in across the street. Anna is on a lot of medications and drinking a lot of beer.
Jane Russell (Julianne Moore) pays Anna a visit one evening, and the two become friends over wine and a game of cards. Jane’s teenage son, Ethan (Fred Hechinger), also comes over to introduce himself to Anna, who claims his boyfriend, Alistair (Gary Oldman), is often abusive to his family. Anna sees Jane being stabbed to death in the living room one night.

When she calls the cops, they refuse to believe her, saying that everybody in the house is fine. Alistair returns, accompanied by “Jane” (Jennifer Jason Leigh), who, to Anna’s surprise, is not the same woman she saw earlier. She starts snooping on the Russells.
David (Wyatt Russell), Anna’s basement roommate, says he didn’t hear or see anything the night the original Jane was allegedly murdered, though Anna later discovers her earring in his bedroom and reveals David was once in jail and had violated his bail terms. Anna is then sent an anonymous e-mail with a snapshot of herself asleep. She re-contacts the police, who are shortly joined by the Russells and David, and she has a nervous breakdown.
It is discovered that Edward and Olivia died in a traffic crash that Anna caused by accident; as a result, Anna has become agoraphobic, and her treatment leads her to have dreams and encounters with people who are not actually there.
Anna apologizes to the Russells and acknowledges she made a mistake. She abandons her fears and then captures a video on her tablet, indicating that she intends to commit suicide by overdosing. The original Jane appears in the reflection of a wine glass in a photograph Anna took on her phone of her cat, confirming she is genuine. When Anna shows David the picture, he admits that the original Jane she encountered is Ethan’s birth mother, Katie Meli.
Katie had been following the Russells, hoping to get closer to Ethan, which was why they had to relocate to Manhattan. As Ethan, who had been lurking in the flat, attacks David, he declines to corroborate Katie’s presence in order to prove Anna’s story.
Ethan tells Anna that he murdered Katie and is a budding serial killer who has previously murdered Alistair’s assistant in Boston, and that he plans to kill Anna.
He’d been breaking into her apartment with a stolen key for the past week, and he was the one who snapped the snapshot of her asleep. Anna assaults Ethan and flees to the apartment roof, where they clash before Anna shoves Ethan through the skylight, killing him.
As Anna recovers in the hospital, Detective Little announces that Alistair and Jane have been arrested for assisting Ethan in the cover-up of Katie’s murder.
Little admits to watching Anna’s video, but gives her her phone back so she can erase it before returning it as evidence. He also expresses his regret for not trusting Anna.
Anna, now sober, tells her final goodbyes to the apartment and her late family before moving out and moving on with her life nine months later.
