Open Window is a 2006 drama film directed by Mia Goldman. The film begins where Peter, an assistant professor, played by Joel Edgerton, is in Santa Monica, California and stops at a hotdog stand. He drives home to greet his girlfriend Izzy who is a photographer, played by Robin Tunney. When they sit down to eat, she finds an engagement ring in her hotdog. One night Peter had a late meeting at the college, and Izzy decided to work in her studio. She heard a noise and saw that a bird had hit the window and couldn't fly. She opened the window and brought the bird inside and put it in a box. Before she knew it, the bird flew back out the window. Getting back to her work she heard another noise and there was a man that had come through the opened window. Izzy is raped by this man and then put in a closet and he nails it shut. Peter comes back and finally finds her in the closet. He immediately takes her to the hospital, and she refuses to file a police report. The following day her mother Arlene, played by Cybil Shepherd, comes to see her and she ends up telling her what happened. Her mother wants to tell her father John, played by Elliot Gould, but Izzy strongly disagrees. Meanwhile, Peter goes to see his father Eddie, played by Scott Wilson but doesn't tell him either. As time goes on, Peter and Izzy grow further and further apart and Peter suggests for her to see a psychologist at the college. Izzy agrees and finds that she helps her a little. But as times goes on Izzy decides to move out of the house to a place of her own. The rape truly puts their relationship to the test, but even though they are different people, they realized even though they both blamed themselves, they had overcome the horrible experience.
