Best Answer

The movie takes place in Illinois, most likely a northern suburb of Chicago. This is evident from the phone number listed on Caroline Burnham's real estate fliers she places in the house she intends to sell. The prefix, 555, of course is fictional; the area code, 847, is Illinois based.
