INTRODUCTION FROM THE FILMMAKER:
ABOUT THE FILM:
THE NEIGHBORS’ WINDOW (written & directed by four-time Oscar-nominated filmmaker Marshall Curry) 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.
This fictional film was inspired by a true story told by Diane Weipert on Love + Radio’s “The Living Room,” produced by Briana Breen and Brendan Baker.
