Disturbia is a 2007 American thriller film partly inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's Rear Window, directed by D. J. Caruso. It stars Shia LaBeouf, David Morse, Sarah Roemer and Carrie-Anne Moss. It was released on April 13, 2007.
Kale Brecht (Shia LaBeouf) and his father Daniel (Matt Craven) are on an rare outing, enjoying a fishing trip. On their return home, their vehicle evades another and ends up in a multi-car accident. Kale is injured in the crash but Daniel is killed. One year later, near the end of the school year, Kale is still traumatized by his father's death. The youth is reprimanded about his school work by his Spanish teacher, Señor Gutierrez (Rene Rivera); and when Gutierrez mentions Kale's father, Kale attacks him. For the assault, he is sentenced by a sympathetic judge to three months under house arrest with an ankle monitor and a proximity sensor. Detective Parker (Viola Davis) explains the do's and don'ts of the system to Kale and his mother Julie (Carrie-Ann Moss). The officer (Jose Pablo Cantillo) joyfully monitoring him follows suit by informing him that he is the teacher's cousin. Initially, he satiates his boredom by playing video games but, shortly thereafter, his mother Julie cancels his subscriptions to the iTunes Music Store and Xbox Live and cuts the power cord of his television as punishment.
