Joe Wright's Anna Karenina lately - have you seen it lately? Hard to believe it's already five years old -- only if we mark time by the stratospheric rise of Domhnall Gleeson's career since does it seems possible that five years have passed; I was only learning Domhnall's name when AK came out but now, well, I can almost spell "Domhnall" without looking it up and I can almost say it out loud without having to pause for a second. Almost!
The Woman in the Window and yadda yadda it is basically Rear Window but starring a lady instead of Jimmy Stewart. But if you insist on filling in the yadda yadda, via DH:
"The story centers on the reclusive Dr. Anna Fox, who spends her days holed in her New York City brownstone drinking wine, binge-watching old films and spying on her neighbors. She eventually witnesses something she shouldn’t while keeping tabs on the seemingly perfect Russell family that lives across the way."
It's based on a book that came out in January by writer AJ Finn (and look at him, that dude is cute, you guys) -- have any of you read it? Is it worth picking up a copy? The thing that stands out to me upon first glance is that this appears to be set in the modern day - Joe Wright hasn't made a modern-day movie since Hanna in 2011; he usually sticks with period or fantastical pieces. I wonder if he'll reunite with his muse Keira Knightley (who's celebrating a birthday today - go wish her a happy one at The Film Experience) - it would be good to see Keira, I feel like it's been awhile, and this certainly sounds like a role she could play. Honestly the story even sounds like it's inviting him to go all stagey like Anna Karenina did, so they'd make nice bookends. Anyway in summation hey remember Eric Bana in Hanna you guys...
