Storyline

Abigail Clayton lives alone. Very alone. In fact, the attractive heiress has not left her Manhattan penthouse apartment for almost two decades. The famous daughter of a wealthy industrialist, Abigail disappeared from the prying eyes of the press and the intrusiveness of her family on her 18th birthday, the day she received her massive inheritance. During years of self-imposed isolation, Abigail has had contact with only two people-her building's Concierge, Klandermann, with whom she communicates via notes-and Dr. Raymond Fontaine, a longtime family friend and her sole confidant for most of her life. When the death of her elderly neighbor prompts NYPD Homicide Detective Frank Giardello to launch an investigation, the agoraphobic Abigail is distressed to find him outside her door, asking to question her. Having tried to acquire the dead woman's now vacant apartment to ensure her privacy, Abigail is further upset when her requests go unanswered, and new tenants Lillian and Charlie move ...

Trivia

In the scene where Helen's Dr told the detectives she had cancer, he should not have said that. He was correct in asking for a subpoena to release the records, but he shouldn't have gotten that point. Hippa law dictated that, even when a patient has died, their medical history is protected. Drs can confirm that someone a patient, but he still wouldn't have been allowed to tell the detectives she had cancer unless forced by a Judge.

Goofs

Not exactly a goof, but it seems unlikely that a woman who lived as a recluse for 20 years would not have the most recent fashions or know how to use a computer. See more »

Don't listen to bad reviews, it is a good movie.
3 March 2012 | by andrewbarry6336See all my reviews

I won't spoil the movie but I will give a few opinions. The story is predictable but still interesting and while it isn't fresh it does have a few things that feel new. It starts off like a detective movie but quickly changes to more of a thriller which is nice. People who gave bad reviews say they couldn't understand why the main character is like she is and makes the movie bad, but I find it easy to understand why she lives like that. Anyone with common sense will see the same thing. The ending is nice too and it is one of those endings where your glad you watched it. Overall I recommend this movie as a rental or a buy when it is 10 bucks or so. Give it a chance and let it develop and the characters acting aren't bad at all as they all played the characters they were suppose too. Give it a whirl and I am sure you will enjoy.
