Apartment 17

Apartment 17 follows the downfall of a washed-up author who sets out to reclaim his fame through a gripping story unfolding in the apartment next door. A critical aspect of this film is that the majority of the dialogue takes place off-screen as the author eavesdrops on the newly-wedded couple next door as he learns about the husband’s secret involvement with the Italian mob in New York City at the time.
