Netflix Officially Acquires Amy Adams' Long-Awaited Movie 'The Woman in the Window'

Amy Adams stars in the film adaptation of the best-selling novel The Woman in the Window and the movie has been sitting on the shelf for over a year.

The film was originally supposed to hit theaters in October 2019, but after some audiences in test screenings felt the plot was too confusing, the release was delayed so that reshoots could be completed.

“There were some plot points that people found a bit confusing — I would say possibly too opaque maybe,” director Joe Wright told EW. “So we had to go back and clarify certain points, but I think also we tried to make sure we didn’t oversimplify anything and make things too clear. There’s an enjoyment in not knowing what’s going on, but at the same time, you have to give the audience something to hold on to — you have to lead them through the labyrinth of mystery and fear.”

A new release date was scheduled for May 2020, but when the pandemic hit, the theatrical release was canceled.

Now, the movie has been acquired by Netflix and EW reports that it will stream “in the first half of the year.”

In the upcoming film, Amy plays Anna Fox, an agoraphobic child psychologist who lives alone in a New York suburb, and while spying on some of her neighbors, witnesses something she shouldn’t have. Anthony Mackie, Wyatt Russell, and Gary Oldman also star. Watch the trailer below!

Amy Adams Responds to 'Hillbilly Elegy' Criticism & Negative Reviews Surrounding the Film

Netflix’s Hillbilly Elegy, starring Amy Adams and Glenn Close and directed by Ron Howard, is being critically panned and the stars are now reacting to the movie’s reviews.

Many of the criticisms of the movie are from how the film portrays its Appalachian setting and characters in that region of the country.

One review from NME states that the movie “betrays the very people it’s trying to celebrate” by “failing to acknowledge the legitimate problems they face.”

When asked about the movie’s reviews by NME, Amy responded, “I think the themes of this movie are very universal. Whether it be generational trauma, whether it be just examining where we come from to understand where we’re going and who we are. I think the universality of the themes of the movie far transcend politics.”

Glenn added that the movie “wasn’t made with politics in mind, it was made with Ron’s intent. I think he succeeded magnificently to tell the story of a very specific family.”

“I never would presume to say what critics should or shouldn’t do,” Amy said when asked if critics should have put politics aside when watching the movie. “Everybody has a voice and can use it how they choose to use it.”

The film currently has a 26% on Rotten Tomatoes and you can check out the trailer here.

Amy Adams Reveals Which of Her Films She Still Loves to Quote!

Amy Adams is looking back on the movies she’s starred in!

While promoting her new movie Hillbilly Elegy, the 46-year-old six-time Oscar nominee talked about her cult classic movie Drop Dead Gorgeous.

The 1999 mockumentary was about the Mount Rose beauty pageant and the tragedies that happen behind the scenes. Amy starred in the movie alongside Kirsten Dunst, Kirstie Alley, Brittany Murphy, Allison Janney, and Denise Richards. It was also the first movie she ever made.

In her new interview, Amy talked about how Drop Dead Gorgeous is still popular with fans, over 20 years after it was released.

“I am constantly quoting the film so it doesn’t surprise me,” Amy explained to E! News, adding that whenever she’s dressed up she quotes the film’s iconic line, “lights, camera, action and me without a stitch of makeup.”

Amy added that she also loves the line, “She’s skinny, not deaf!” which was said by Denise‘s character Becky Ann Leeman.

“It was before its time,” Amy shared of the controversial comedy, “but I love it and I’m so proud that was my first film.”
