About the film
Release Date: Feb 28, 2019
Director: Neil Jordan
Actors: Isabelle Huppert, Chloe Grace MoretzFrances (Chloë Grace Moretz, SUSPIRIA) may just not be cut out for life in New York City. She’s smart, she works hard, but her roommate Erica (Maika Monroe, IT FOLLOWS) thinks she’s too naive for her own good. Which is why when Frances notices that an older woman (Isabelle Huppert, ELLE) has left her handbag on the subway, Erica encourages her to take the cash and leave it be.
That’s not Frances’ style, though, so she returns the bag to its rightful owner, Greta. The two quickly hit it off, filling a need in each other’s lives as Frances recently lost her mother and Greta feels lonely with her daughter living abroad. But Frances quickly discovers that Greta isn’t the person she’s pretending to be. And when she tries to cut things off, Greta makes it clear that she has no intention of going quietly into the night. Greta gets weirder and wilder and the film progresses – go along for the ride. It’s a joy.
A pulpy thriller from Neil Jordan (THE CRYING GAME, MICHEAL Collins) in the vein of SINGLE WHITE FEMALE and FATAL ATTRACTION, GRETA lures you into its web as it builds toward a breathtaking climax.
