THE NEIGHBORS’ WINDOW (written & directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Marshall Curry) tells the story of a mother (Maria Dizzia) who has grown frustrated with her husband (Greg Keller) and her daily routine. 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. (Marshall Curry's other films)
NOTE: There are quiet scenes that work much better with headphones if you watch on a computer.

Comparing your lives to others is the shortcut to unhappiness. As soon as social media came on the rise depression and suicide spiked. If you can go without social media for one month you will be amazed at the clarity youll have. Much more focused, driven and in general enjoying your life.

I am so moved by this picture after finding it accidentally, and couldn't begin to cleverly word something that all these wonderful folks in the comment section haven't already,, such a gentle, thoughtful crowd here - so I will say instead how beautiful the production quality is as well. The logistics of finding two buildings in just the right juxtaposition must have been a neat trick, thus warranting the nod in the end credits, "Thank you (to)The Patient Residents of 438, 444, and 420 12th Street." Clearly those must have been the locations and people were probably put out for a while during filming, but bless them for it, or this film might not have been realized. It all looked absolutely "real" because I am certain it was, as far as practical long shots of our couple talking in the foreground and way way back behind is the out-of-focus yet very visible neighbor's place. And naturally OUR eyes go there too. I can't imagine how hard that would be to film, what with lighting issues and glare on glass, reflections, and how BRIGHT the sun can be when shooting indoors, when exposing the lens for interior lighting and suddenly windows turn into big over-exposed white blobs of light. BRAVO on achieving a totally natural look, as if we were there. Also the in and out focus technique used on the two leads when they FIRST notice it all - they are sitting at the table, in the same shot, staring and commenting, but the camera gently adjusts the focus to whoever is commenting, making an expression, etc., thus directing our eye as to who to observe. I am not a cinematographer but it HAD to be some very complex or maybe amazingly simple use of lenses and depth of field but it is fantastically effective, and that bit alone got me to watching ALL the filming technique. However, too often I would get involved in the story and I am sure I missed a lot- I will be watching again but emotionally I need to wait a bit. Thank you so very much!

This was such a punch into the gut for me. I tell people, jokingly, that I am living vicariously through them but I never thought about how they may view my life with envy as well.

Men can still look cool young and attractive for a long time and even upp to their 50’s theyre still partyin but girls that are in their 50’s are way toooo oldddd bc they have some wrinkles and age is way more a big deal on a girl and a girl will be labelled as an old lady But this society in general is sick. Time or how long ur body has been working for u to live shouldnt be graded as something negative like too old or something. Why are we jealous of young bodies? We still have perfectly fine working bodies, except with some chemicals that make uss look young our bodies lack of as time goes on...but its still a body guys
