If, after seeing the excellent movie Elle of Paul Verhoeven you became eager to see the French actress Isabelle Huppert as a sociopath, good news: it will now be a stalker in Greta.
Directed by irish director Neil Jordan (The Crying Game), winner of an Academy Award, and with an impressive cast that includes Stephen Rea (The Crying Game), Isabelle Huppert (Elle) and Chloë Grace Moretz (The Miseducation of Cameron Post), Greta is a psychological thriller contemporary: after discovering a bag in a train from New York, Frances McCullen (Moretz), a young woman distraught over the death of his mother, tries to return it to its legitimate owner, Greta Hideg (Huppert).
Subsequently, Frances strikes up a friendship unusual with the enigmatic widow, but the motives of Greta may be more sinister than they appear initially (the purses!), so the whole thing ends pretty creepy when Greta becomes a stalker uncontrolled it will make you mistrust all over the world, because the life of Greta is not what it seems. No, sir.
As we see in the preview, the madness of Greta is taking the leading role (and Huppert is absolutely exquisite in doing so) forcing the sweet Frances to accept the fact that it has not found a new mother figure, but a predatory, dangerous. What initially appears to be a drama, a little stiff, soon becomes one of those films that promise to twisties interesting and machiavellian. We can’t wait.
Some of the best works of Jordan have come in the genre of the thriller, so it will be interesting to see how to upgrade your approach with this great cast. Greta will be released next March 1, 2019 in cinemas. Check out the trailer below:
