La fenêtre panoramique


April et Frank Wheeler forment un jeune ménage américain comme il y en a tant : ils s'efforcent de voir la vie à travers la fenêtre panoramique du pavillon qu'ils ont fait construire dans la banlieue new-yorkaise. Frank prend chaque jour le train pour aller travailler à New York dans le service de publicité d'une grande entreprise de machines électroniques mais, comme April, il se persuade qu'il est différent de tous ces petits-bourgeois au milieu desquels ils sont obligés de vivre, certains qu'un jour, leur vie changera... Pourtant les années passent sans leur apporter les satisfactions d'orgueil qu'ils espéraient. S'aiment-ils vraiment ? Jouent-ils à s'aimer ? Se haïssent-ils sans se l'avouer ?... Quand leur échec social devient évident, le drame éclate.
