Finn Director: Joe Wright Distributor: Netflix/20th Century Studios Release Date: May 14, 2021 THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW isn’t shy about referencing the film REAR WINDOW.

IMPERIUM | © 2016 Lionsgate

Release Date: December 27, 2013 AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY won the 2008 Best Play Tony for its debut Broadway performance, and it’s easy to see why – Tracy Letts’ script is well-constructed and cumulatively devastating. The film version, with a screenplay adapted by Letts and directed by John Wells, opens the play up somewhat by giving us some of the […]Read On »
