This is a crazy ride from the get-go. The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window is funny and dark with a strong storyline. You will not want to miss this.
This review of the Netflix limited series The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window does not contain any spoilers.
The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window is bonkers. Absolutely bonkers. Even though we’re only in the first month of 2022, it’s going to be tough to find a show in 2022 that outdoes this series in terms of its insane tone. Of course, the long-winded title is already a sign of the wackiness to come. But believe me, even the title can’t prepare you for what’s to come.
The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window centers around Kristen Bell’s character Anna. Anna, who audiences will love, is mourning the death of her daughter and subsequently the end of her marriage. A great lover of wine, her days are filled with emptiness. That is until handsome neighbour Neil moves into the house opposite. With a hint of happiness heading her way, Anna becomes obsessed when she believes she witnesses a murder. But as she’s rarely without a glass of wine, few believe her, and soon after, Anna turns detective.
With Kristen Bell leading the cast as Anna, it’s already guaranteed to be a great watch. Also making memorable performances are Tom Riley, Mary Holland, Shelley Hennig, Cameron Britton, and Benjamin Levy Aguilar. Whilst Michael Ealy is also in the cast, he isn’t in the show as much as you would think. P.S there’s a cameo that audiences will adore.
What will The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window remind you of? Above anything else, Netflix’s Dead to Me will come to mind. It has a similar charm/dark humor present. Throw in a little bit of The Woman in the Window (2021), The Flight Attendant (2020), Sharp Objects (2018), and Gone Girl (2014), and you’ll end up with this.
The plot itself may not be the most original, think Rear Window (1954) and the already mentioned The Woman in the Window. But it’s still a wild ride. With the story reflecting more of a horror/thriller tone, it’s the script and the cast that bring levels of dark comedy. This series is without a doubt going to become your next binge-watch.
Above all, The Woman in the House Across the Street From the Girl in the Window is a fun and quirky watch. It may become one of the best shows of 2022.
