When a movie is based on the stalking of Chloë Grace Moretz, how can one not want to watch it. Since Kick-Ass, I have been following Chloe’s films and have watched her grow up on the screen. It is almost like I am stalking Chloe via her movies.
Greta is a suspense thriller that is all that…much suspense and the thrill of Chloe trying to shake her stalker. The film begins with Chloe’s character, Frances McCullen, whose kindness finds her returning a purse left on the train to an older lady. The nice lady invites her into the house and thanks her with something to drink.The two of them strike up a friendship, mostly because Frances had recently lost her mother.
Greta, played by Isabelle Huppert, comes on a bit too strong and when Frances tries to separate herself from Greta, it turned obsessive. Greta stalks Frances to the point that she fears for her life.
Neil Jordan, who won the Academy Award for the film The Crying Game, directed this brutal film that makes you fear for Frances’ life too. The obsession just does start and stop, but it restarts, stops, starts again, and finally comes to an end…or does it?
The film is wonderful and enjoyable which has everything you could want in a stalker film.
