Synopsis


Windows
Slow-moving and dark, this Klute clone stars Talia Shire as Emily Hollander, a retiring, painfully introverted woman with a stutter who advertises her insecurity. She is attacked one day and her anguish recorded on tape by her assailant. It soon becomes apparent that her wacko lesbian neighbor Andrea (Elizabeth Ashley) is in love with her but too demented to express herself openly. She hired the assailant, though exactly why is not clear. Detective Bob Luffrono (Joseph Cortese) is called in to watch over Emily and perhaps corner her attacker. The relationship between Emily and the detective starts to slowly heat up, but meanwhile, there is Andrea with her telescope, spying on Emily and definitely up to no good. ~ Eleanor Mannikka, Rovi

    Windows--A Very Controversial Thriller

    Posted
    GoodMovieLover

    Talia Shire ("Rocky"), stars in this atmospheric mystery as Emily; who is brutally attacked one night after work as she enters her apartment. Eventually she discovers that the attacker was hired by her best friend Andrea (Elizabeth Ashley), who masterminded the whole thing because she has feelings for Emily. Not really giving too much away here-everything is telegraphed a bit too soon in this deliberately slow paced film. This proved to be a very controversial film upon its release in 1980-there were many LGBT groups that protested the portrayal of the Elizabeth Ashley character in the film.. Beautifully photographed though, featuring direction from "The Godfather" cinematographer; Gordon Willis in his directorial debut.
