The woman in the house across the street from the girl in the window. For heartbroken Anna (Kristen Bell), every day is the same. She sits with her wine, staring out the window, watching life go by without her. But when a handsome neighbor (Tom Riley) and his adorable daughter move in across the street, Anna starts to see a light at the end of the tunnel. That is until she witnesses a gruesome murder… Or did she?
There’s an on-going trend in book publishing that has authors throwing “woman” or “girl” into the titles of their mysteries. Gone Girl. The Girl on the Train. The Woman in the Window. I guess you could even go back further with The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo and its subsequent Girl sequels. And now Netflix is getting into the action with The Woman in the House. It’s not a book, though – it’s a new limited series that will star Kristen Bell. In the show, Bell plays a woman who thinks she’s witnessed a murder. Or has she?
