While 2021’s THE WOMAN IN THE WINDOW proved largely to be forgettable, at least this eight episode Mini-Series inspired by that film, gets it right! THE WOMAN IN THE HOUSE ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE GIRL IN THE WINDOW is a hilarious, dark and twisty Thriller that is over-the-top, and that just might be what we need right now.
Kristen Bell stars as Anna, not to be confused for the Frozen heroine of the same name which she also voices. After a devastating loss, she and her husband Douglas (Michael Ealy) part ways and she finds herself obsessed with a handsome new neighbour across the road named Neil (Tom Riley) and his daughter Emma (Samsara Yett).Anna consumes a large amount of red wine and prescription pills and the lines get dulled as she copes with her own grief and lives vicariously through her neighbours. Deaths begin to accumulate, and she suspects that Neil might be responsible, so she circles dangerously close trying to solve this mystery on her own, finding herself a suspect as well. Did she do it? Or is this all in her head?
Michael Lehmann has directed some classics including episodes of Veronica Mars, Heathers, 40 Days and 40 Nights and The Truth About Cats & Dogs and gets the tone just right here. The highly digestible Series at 20+ minutes per episode, is packed with little cliffhangers that could make it a late night for you depending how late you start watching. Though it is laugh-out-loud ridiculous, it actually stands on its own as nail-biting Thriller, never getting too lost in the Comedy of it all.
Bell approaches the role a bit deadpan, but is completely in on the joke, letting the writing from a Trio of Creators in Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras guide us through a wild ride through Anna‘s in troubled mind. Also, you won’t be disappointed by the square-off at the end!
THE WOMAN IN THE HOUSE ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE GIRL IN THE WINDOW is a perfect mixture of jump scares and LOLs we all need to make it through these winter and pandemic blahs. It screams… I mean streams January 28, 2022 on Netflix.
Kristen Bell stars in Thriller-Comedy THE WOMAN IN THE HOUSE ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE GIRL IN THE WINDOW! Check-out this brand-new Trailer. We’re so intrigued by this new eight-episode Series!
Synopsis: For heartbroken Anna (Kristen Bell), every day is the same. She sits with her wine, staring out the window, watching life go by without her. But when a handsome neighbour (Tom Riley) and his adorable daughter (Samsara Yett) move in across the street, Anna starts to see a light at the end of the tunnel. That is until she witnesses a gruesome murder… Or did she?
From creators Rachel Ramras, Hugh Davidson and Larry Dorf, The Woman in the House Across the Street from the Girl in the Window is a darkly comedic, wine-soaked, satirical slant on the psychological thriller that will have you guessing who, what, where, why and how in the hell?! until the very end.
Michael Ealy, Mary Holland, Shelley Hennig, Cameron Britton, Christina Anthony and Benjamin Levy Aguilar also co-star opposite Bell, who executive-produces the limited series alongside Will Ferrell, Jessica Elbaum and Brittney Segal for Gloria Sanchez Productions.
THE WOMAN IN THE HOUSE ACROSS THE STREET FROM THE GIRL IN THE WINDOW arrives January 28, 2022 on Netflix.
Following its $1.26 billion-grossing international success at the Box Office, en route to winning two Academy Awards, the reception for 2013’s FROZEN needless to say, was really exceedigly warm. Hence its successor, FROZEN II comes with much anticipation and expectation, reuniting stars Kristen Bell, Idina Menzel and Josh Gad together in Toronto for a Fan Event. The evening give fans not only a rare chance to see the stars, but also preview snippets of the Film, which still has yet to screen for Canadian Media.
The Film which sees Chris Buck and Jennifer Lee returning as Co-Directors, has sisters Elsa (Menzel) and Anna (Bell) venturing beyond their homeland of Arendelle to save their Kingdom. Along the way, they hope to understand the origins of Elsa’s magical powers, which had divided the sisters just three years prior.
See the Trailer:
TeamMr.Will had the joy of chatting with the Cast of Frozen II at the much-hyped Fan Event at Scotiabank Theatre, brought to us fittingly by The Weather Network.
We asked Menzel about Elsa‘s journey this time around. She says, “I’d say in the first one Elsa was more ashamed and apologetic of her powers and in FrozenII, she steps into her own and embraces them.”.
“They’re definitely not little girls anymore and hopefully like their audience, they are growing, maturing and evolving as young women. But ultimately, it is a love story between two sisters who push themselves to be the best that they can be and to find their self-love.”.
We ask Bell whether or not becoming a mother has affected the types of projects she’s taken on. She tells us, “It’s actually solidified the choices I’ve made and will make because I want my girls to know that I shape myself based on my own internal barometer. So even though I do shows that are darker like House of Lies, I might not show that to them now that they are six years old, but I’m so proud that this woman had a sexuality about her. So while I really do enjoy doing family projects, it hasn’t really affected my projects.”.
We ask Gad, who reprises his scene-stealing role as Olaf the Snowman, what it’s like being the breakout star of the Franchise. He jokes, “It feels great to be the breakout star of Frozen. I’m telling you at home I know I steal these movies, but this absolutely has to be kept in-house. I can’t let her (Bell) know, I can’t let Idina know, I don’t want to hurt their feelings.”.
Kidding aside, he states “It’s such an honour and a thrill growing up with Disney films, being a part of the generation that was given The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin and The Lion King at a very young age. Being a part of telling those stories to a new generation, it’s such a dream come true.”.

Fed up, she joins forces with two other over-stressed moms on a quest to liberate themselves from conventional responsibilities – going on a wild, un-mom-like binge of long overdue freedom, fun and self-indulgence – putting them on a collision course with PTA Queen Bee Gwendolyn and her clique of devoted perfect moms.
