Clip from Nacho Vigalondo’s Open Windows starring Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey

Last Updated on July 22, 2021

Today we’ve got the first clip from Nacho Vigalondo’s voyeuristic thriller OPEN WINDOWS, starring Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey. In the film, Vigalondo uses a unique visual language with webcams and surveillance video to tell a nail-biting story in real time, all from the framework of the laptop of Elijah Wood’s character. The clip will give you a good idea of how that works.

Nick (Elijah Wood, Maniac, The Lord of the Rings) is excited to discover that he’s won a dinner date with his favorite actress, Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey, Would You Rather, The Girlfriend Experience). But when Jill refuses to honor the contest, her manager Chord (Neil Maskell, Wild Bill, Pusher) makes an offer he can’t refuse: the ability to view Jill secretly via computer. Nick begins watching the unknowing star on her webcam, not realizing that this decision will put both himself and Jill at risk as they enter a terrifying world of cat-and-mouse where nothing-and no one-are as they seem.

OPEN WINDOWS will be on VOD on October 2nd and in select theaters on November 7th.
