The Neighbors’ Window a short film by Marshall Curry

29 October 2022

Here’s some weekend viewing for you. The Neighbors’ Window, a short film made in 2019 by American filmmaker Marshall Curry, is a story about two middle-aged parents who become obsessed with a twenty-something couple who move into an apartment across the street.

The Neighbors’ Window tells the story of Alli (Maria Dizzia), a mother of young children who has grown frustrated with her daily routine and husband (Greg Keller). But her life is shaken up when two free-spirited twenty-somethings move in across the street and she discovers that she can see into their apartment.

Any film with the word window in it is just about always going to draw the inevitable comparions to Alfred Hitchcock’s Rear Window, but as The Neighbors’ Window goes to show, things are never quite what they seem to be.

Based on actual events, as recounted by writer and filmmaker Diane Weipert, Curry’s fictional work has won a slew of awards, including Best Live Action Short at the 2020 Academy Awards.
