Movie Review: Open Windows
Elijah Wood stars in this chilling film about voyeurism

Movie fan Nick (Elijah Wood) wins a date with his favourite actress in an online competition but is left stunned when the star, named Jill Goddard, refuses to have dinner with him. In return, a man named Chord introduces himself as the woman’s campaign manager and instead gives him the opportunity to spy on the celeb from his own computer.

Initially enthusiastic, Nick soon realises he’s become a pawn in a dangerous game of cat and mouse as Chord’s manic plans to hunt her down are revealed.

In a curious twist on the theme of voyeurism, Jill is played by former adult film star Sasha Grey, and we expect many people will be keen to see how she gets on in her first major mainstream film role.
