The toss of a coin, a locked door, (un)lucky timing: in 16 short minutes The Window plays out the consequences, intended and unforeseen, as seemingly minor events build into life-changing moments.
Writer and director Adam Morse shows both sides of the coin, with parallel timelines as the actors converge and previously thrown-away lines gather significance.
A confined house and garden set is used to great effect, encapsulating the action under one metaphorical and physical roof, and shot in a style which gives a simultaneous sense of being inside the room and outside, observing through an open window.
