Secret Window, a psychological thriller based on Steven King's "Secret Window, Secret Garden" explores the broken life of successful mystery writer Mort Rainey (Johnny Depp). In an effort to avoid the pain of a failing marriage and overcome his writer's block, Mort escapes to a secluded cabin where he is confronted by John Shooter (John Turturro), a mentally unstable farmer who accuses Mort of plagiarism. Curious, Mort reads Shooter's manuscript to find that the two stories are remarkably similar. Mort claims he can prove that his book is the original, but each attempt to bring the truth to light is stymied by the deranged Shooter. Set in New York, this twisting tale calls to question the relationship between a writer and his inspiration. More interestingly, it explores the issue of a human being's breaking point, and of his ability to pursue and correctly perceive what is true when everything around him indicates that he is wrong.
