Description

    A sweet, naïve young woman trying to make it on her own in New York City, Frances (Chloë Grace Moretz) doesn’t think twice about returning the handbag she finds on the subway to its rightful owner.

    That owner is Greta (Isabelle Huppert), an eccentric French piano teacher with a love for classical music and an aching loneliness.  Having recently lost her mother, Frances quickly grows closer to widowed Greta. The two become fast friends — but Greta’s maternal charms begin to dissolve and grow increasingly disturbing as Frances discovers that nothing in Greta’s life is what it seems in this suspense thriller from Academy Award®-winning director Neil Jordan.

Reviews

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Greta...doesn't quite make it... From a talented director Neil Jordan ("The Crying Game"), "Greta" starring French icon Isabelle Huppert and Hollywood pretty-girl Chloe Grace Moretz ("Carrie"), this film billed as a nail biter, is quite a disappointment. Whilst it has an intriguing premise with the older french actress becoming dangerously obsessed with the 'innocent' younger girl, the flaws in "Greta" emerge as rather startling and the thrill in this film become cliched and predictable rather quickly. The acting is strong, but the writing and screenplay flounders and is weak and by-the-numbers. "Greta" failed at the US and Australian box-office and the overall effect is dampened by a director, who usually is strong; but sadly flounders this opportunity. Will the younger girl escape the clutches of the older actress? and what is mentally wrong with the older actress? These questions appear to be the concern of this rather flat film. In summary: "Greta" is a thriller which fails to thrill.
