More Info IMDb

Alfred Hitchcock's classic REAR WINDOW has been enthralling audiences for almost sixty years thanks to indelible performances by Jimmy Stewart and Grace Kelly and riveting direction by one of the most influential filmmakers of all time. A thrilling foray into voyeurism, REAR WINDOW is about professional photographer Jeff Jeffries (Stewart) who is wheelchair-bound after sustaining an injury on the job. Jeff is unused to sitting still for long and finds himself drawn into the world seen through his neighbors' windows as he recovers in his apartment. He begins to suspect that a neighbor may have murdered his wife and he lures his high society girlfriend (Kelly) into his amateur--and dangerous!--investigation. 

Using highly stylized filmmaking and enticing the audience into a relationship with the screen that mimics Jeff's relationship with his window, REAR WINDOW is often hailed as one of the most outstanding films of American cinema. 

"REAR WINDOW is one of my favorite movies. I love REAR WINDOW because it's got such a mood, and even though I know exactly what happens next, I enjoy to be in that room and feel that time. It´s almost like I could smell it.... Hitchcock manages to take something huge and condense it into something really small. And he achieves that through a complete control of filmmaking technique." - David Lynch
