Nov 17, 09 Cry of the Owl Movie Review

The Cry of An OwlBased on the novel by Patricia Highsmith (The Talented Mr. Ripley), Cry of the Owl is a psychological thriller about a troubled young man, Robert (Paddy Considine), a depressed man, but fundamentally decent, who leaves the big city to escape to a tumultuous marriage and his ex-wife for the tranquility of a small town. He finds respite from his problems by secretly watching the normal family life of a woman he does not know (Jenny Julia Stiles) through the window of his kitchen, a palliative apparently harmless to his solitary life and marriage has failed. Robert becomes infatuated with Jenny. However, when Jenny catches Robert in the act, it does not call the police. Instead she feels a strange empathy for Robert and invites her home. Robert is drawn into a relationship with Jenny, who has disastrous consequences when her boyfriend, Greg, finds out. Immediately suspicious of Robert, Greg makes it his mission to destroy it. But when a fight leaves Greg unconscious and missing, Robert discovers that he is the prime suspect in a murder case that begins slowly to look like the ultimate set-up.
