In case you hadn’t heard, 2021 is already starting to look up thanks to the imminent arrival (reference!) of a new Amy Adams movie. Save all your Oscars jokes for another time because we do nothing but support one of the greatest living actresses of our time in these parts. Adams will next star in The Woman in the Window, which is based on the book of the same name by A. J. Finn, as an agoraphobic woman named Dr. Anna Fox. After befriending one of her neighbors from across the street, Anna soon discovers that her friend has disappeared. Naturally, she suspects foul play occurred in the matter and becomes involved in tracking her down to her own detriment.

The Woman in the Window comes from director Joe Wright, who also directed such movies as Pride & Prejudice, Atonement, The Soloist, Hanna, Anna Karenina and Darkest Hour. The film also comes from writer Tracy Letts, who also wrote the movies Bug, Killer Joe and August: Osage County. Obviously, The Woman in the Window has taken some time to be released, considering its theatrical push by Fox was canceled in the wake of the pandemic. Once again, Netflix stepped in to make sure the world sees Amy Adams knock another role out of the park. Catch the Academy Award nominee in a window when the movie hits watch lists everywhere this year.
