Film Series: Rear Window

1954. USA. Dir: Alfred Hitchcock. With James Stewart, Grace Kelly. 112 min.

A wheelchair-bound photographer spends his days snooping on his neighbors through their windows; this hobby not only trumps his interest in his girlfriend (Grace effing Kelly!), but cues him to suspect sinister deeds across the courtyard. Hitchcock’s thriller indulges the voyeurism of film-going, providing the most fun one can have with a broken leg.

Tonight. 8pm. Goldsmith Family Cinema. $5.
