Miss Meadows Movie

Taglines: She doesn’t well with others.

In Miss Meadows, Katie Holmes plays a sweet and proper elementary school teacher whose perfect manners and pretty floral dresses hide a dark secret: when she’s not teaching at the local elementary school or tending to her garden, she’s moonlighting as a gun-toting vigilante.

Prim schoolteacher Miss Meadows (Katie Holmes) is not entirely what she appears. Well-mannered, sweet, and caring, yes, but underneath the candy-sweet exterior hides the soul of a vigilante, taking it upon herself to right the wrongs in this cruel world by whatever means necessary. Things get complicated, however, when Miss Meadows gets romantically entangled with the town sheriff (James Badge Dale) and her steadfast moral compass is thrown off, begging the question: “Who is the real Miss Meadows and what is she hiding?”

About the Story

Miss Mary Meadows is a young woman who works as a substitute first-grade elementary school teacher and enjoys taking long walks in her suburban neighborhood and wearing traditional clothing and tap-dancing shoes. Unknown to everyone, she is a secret vigilante who murders local thugs who accost her or when she witnesses them committing crimes. She always carries a small semi-automatic pistol in her purse and speaks in a child-like innocent manner. She lives by herself in a small house and talks occasionally with her mother over the telephone about what she did during the day.

Investigating the vigilante killings is a local sheriff. He soon meets and develops an attraction to Miss Meadows due to her old-fashion clothing and style of speech. When he begins to suspect that the calmly woman he finds himself drawn to may be the suspect he is looking for, the sheriff is torn over whether to arrest her or protect her.

When Miss Meadows meets an ex-convict named Skylar, whom she learns served time for molesting young children, she begins to fear for her young students safety. When Miss Meadows approaches and threatens to kill Skylar if he continues hanging around the school or around her kids, he begins stalking her.

Miss Meadows Movie - Katie Holmes

It is eventually revealed that all of the telephone conversations that Miss Meadows has been having with her mother over the course of the film are imaginary. As a young girl, Mary Meadows witnessed her mother’s murder in a drive-by shooting outside a local church after attending the wedding of a family friend. This traumatic incident left Miss Meadows so emotionally scarred that she withdrew into a fantasy world which she imagined that her mother is still alive and caused her to go after and kill criminals who she sees as a threat to society.

When Miss Meadows learns that she is pregnant after a one-time sexual encounter with the sheriff, she decides to accept his proposal to get married. On the day of the wedding, Skylar kidnaps Heather, one of Miss Meadows students, from her house, forcing Miss Meadows to go to Skylar’s house (wearing her wedding dress) to try to stop him, only to end up a captive herself. When she manages to free Heather and struggle with Skylar over her gun, the sheriff, passing by after leaving the church, sees Heather running away from Skylar’s house. Meanwhile, Skyler gets Miss Meadows’s gun and asks her, “Do you really think you can save the world? Well, try saving your self!” Just after saying that, the sheriff arrives and shoots Skylar to death before he can kill Miss Meadows. The sheriff offers to protect Miss Meadows by reporting that Skylar was the vigilante.

Oscar-nominated writer – director Nacho Vigalondo (The ABCs of Death, Timecrimes, V/H/S Viral) creates an action-packed world of voyeurism and suspense in his thriller Open Windows.

When Nick (Elijah Wood) discovers that he’s won a dinner date with his favorite star Jill Goddard (Sasha Grey), he’s incredibly excited to finally get the chance to meet her. That excitement deflates when Jill refuses to honor the contest and all of Nick’s hopes are dashed. He’s intrigued when Chord (Neil Maskell), a man claiming to be Jill’s campaign manager, offers him something he can’t quite refuse: Chord will give Nick the ability to constantly view Jill via computer. Nick is initially reluctant but Chord persuades him by saying that he should get at least some entertainment out of the actress. However, Nick is unaware that this decision will put himself and Jill at risk.

Open Windows is a Spanish thriller film directed and written by Nacho Vigalondo. The film had its world premiere on March 10, 2014 at South by Southwest, and stars Elijah Wood, Sasha Grey and Neil Maskell. The film is Vigalondo’s first film in the English language.

About the Story

Nick Chambers wins a contest to meet his favorite actress, Jill Goddard. Nick, the webmaster of a fansite dedicated to Jill, is crushed when Chord, Jill’s manager, informs him that she has not only failed to invite him to the film’s publicity but also canceled the contest. Chord remotely sends Nick a link to his laptop that opens a live stream. Chord explains that he has hacked into Jill’s cell phone and activated the microphone and camera without her knowledge. Although uneasy about invading her privacy, Nick goes along with Chord’s plans to spy on her. By eavesdropping on her phone conversations, they learn that she will secretly meet her agent, Tony, with whom she is having an affair, at the same hotel in which Nick is staying.

Chord directs Nick to use preexisting high end surveillance equipment to spy on Jill and Tony. As he watches them, Nick is briefly contacted by a trio of hackers who address him as Nevada. Jill leaves Tony’s room. When Nick’s lights spontaneously turn on and Tony can see the camera pointed at his room, Nick panics as Tony leaves his room to investigate. Chord orders Nick to use a Taser to incapacitate Tony. Feeling that he has no choice, Nick agrees. Nick initially refuses to tie up Tony but does so once Chord threatens to stop helping him. Suspicious of why all this equipment is available in his hotel room, Nick questions who Chord really is; Chord ignores him and guides him out of the hotel by hacking into its security system.

Open Windows Movie - Sasha Grey

Chord blackmails Nick into further compliance by revealing that the entire contest was a hoax, and Chord now has video proof of Nick’s crimes. Chord forces Nick to follow Jill to her house, and he is contacted once again by the trio of hackers, who believe Nick to be a famous hacker. They offer to help him in his latest hack, and Nick recruits them to counteract Chord. Meanwhile, Chord hacks into Jill’s PC when she goes home. When Nick refuses to send her PC a file, Chord demonstrates that he is capable of sneaking into Jill’s house and killing her.

The file turns out to be a live feed of Tony’s torture by electric current. Horrified, Nick attempts to bargain with Chord for Tony’s release, but Chord only tortures Tony further. Chord forces Nick to give commands to Jill through her PC, and Nick demands that she reveal her naked breasts. Satisfied with the resulting video, Chord breaks the connection. Nick frantically attempts to warn Jill, but she is kidnapped by Chord. With the help of the hackers, Nick pursues Chord. However, once they realize that Chord is apparently the master hacker Nevada, their loyalties are torn. Although they continue to help him, they warn Nick that Nevada is the best in the world and a veteran of numerous anarchist operations, though none have resulted in physical harm to anyone.
