A Watchful Spy

Halloween is over, but if you’re still looking for chills and thrills, you might head over to Biltmore Fashion Park. The posh-leaning shopping center might not seem like the spot for suspense-seekers, but its weekly Movies in the Park features Rear Window, one of Alfred Hitchcock’s best, on Friday, November 2.

Jimmy Stewart plays photographer L.B. “Jeff” Jeffries who is recuperating from a broken leg and confined to his New York apartment. Naturally, he takes up spying on his neighbors. The voyeuristic tale is taut with tension when the mundanity that Jeffries witnesses builds to something more sinister. The classic film is the perfect prelude to the upcoming Hitchcock biopic starring Anthony Hopkins and Sienna Miller.
