I saw "Open Window" on Showtime and was so captivated by it that I had to see it again. It's really the first time I've seen a movie that shows that there is more than one victim when an act of violence happens to somebody else.
The relationship between Peter and Izzy is real and honest. How can a couple really grasp when something this devastating happens to them? "Open Window" shows this relationship unfold in a way that I haven't seen before.
Some would say that this film has too many scenes where there are two people talking, but it is so much more than that. The conversations between Peter and his father, Izzy and her therapist, etc. are the key to the films beauty. These small scenes let you into the characters so much.
I found the directing, acting and writing so subtle and yet so powerful.
Hopefully, word of mouth will give the film the recognition that it should have had a year ago when it was at Sundance.
