Innocent curiosity turns into full-blown obsession when a young Montreal couple spy on their eccentric neighbours across the street as a young couple (Sydney Sweeney and Justice Smith), find themselves becoming interested in the sex life of their neighbors across the street (Ben Hardy and Natasha Liu Bordizzo). What starts as an innocent curiosity turns into an unhealthy obsession, after they discover that one neighbor is cheating. Temptation and desire cause their lives to become tangled together leading to deadly consequences.
The Voyeurs kicks off with a forbidden fruit of living in a city—getting a window into other people’s sex lives. Pippa and Thomas have just moved into a large flat in Montreal, and directly across from them is some type of gorgeous artsy couple. Soon into their move, they see the couple have some real software action, causing Pippa and Thomas to guffaw, and then watch. On another night, it happens again, and in a scene that marks a peak for the sexual excitement, the two voyeurs add some virtual reality to the mix.
The couple next door having sex are Seb and Julia, a former model who left behind that life. Hardy is sincerely cheesy in the role that has him being an overly sexual photographer; whose photoshoots with other women cause nosey neighbors Pippa and Thomas to think they’re witnessing cheating. (The question of a possible open relationship is raised by our nosy neighbors, and then blatantly shut down.) Suddenly they realize they’re not witnessing a hot sex life but a lie that comes with a gaslighting, abusive partner. Pippa’s closeness to this story across the way compels her to say something, and that proves to be a big mistake.
“The Voyeurs” offers a formidable roster of feelings, starting with how Sweeney depicts the curiosity, the seduction of looking, of wanting to live inside the projection put upon someone whose sex life is enhanced with a binocular’s aim. The script also gives her ample time to be funny and playful, opposite Justice Smith’s more low-key, less amused boyfriend who enters into the movie wanting to get an accordion. Their chemistry is sexy when needed, but also a little goofy, like when they try to obtain a crafty audio connection at the neighbouring apartment via the incognito of a costume party.
