The Woman in the Window is an entertaining “Gone Girl” rip off that borders on being farfetched. Taking cues from old black and white films like Rear Window, you’ll enjoy references during the quick read. The woman in distress is agoraphobic so using binoculars to satisfy her curiosity about her neighbors is plausible. Oh she is a therapist who may or may not have patients on line since she won’t leave the house. The surprises work to a certain extent. It reads like a screenplay and will adapt well for the cinema.
