[The film] goes down like medicine.

[A] sometimes unbearably slow, uneven melodrama that's not without a few powerful sequences.

Top Critic

[A]voids all the overblown histrionics of other similar films that have dealt with such subject matter... and finds the quiet but difficult core of the act of will that is survival and recovery.

...feels like a short that's unnaturally been expanded to feature length...

I just couldn't buy into the way the film veered into a family drama when it started out so confidently.

Audience Reviews for Open Window

This starts out with a point and then grows rather aimless. Cybill Shepherd was absolutely terrible.

I'm not sure why this movie hasn't had better ratings. Maybe it was a little slow at times, but I found it very good, and very moving. It was well done, with some really great actors...complete with a very nice, satisfying ending.

True to life. The stuggles of coming to terms when something horrific happens, especially rape, for both men and women is severe. It doesn't always just affect the ones who were raped... it affects their partner, their family, and their friends. I think they did a great job showing the emotional breakdown of everyone in the film and each of them coming to terms with things in their own way.
