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.

French actress Isabelle Huppert has been on a prolific streak. A mainstay in French cinema, Huppert burst with renewed vigour into the international spotlight with her role in ‘Elle’. A master at playing unhinged women characters, Huppert jumps into her role as Greta in Irish writer-director Neil Jordan’s latest outing with a kind of impish relish that makes her irresistible to watch.

Someone has misplaced her handbag. Considerate Frances McCullen (Chloë Grace Moretz) picks it up in a subway and promptly returns it to the owner - Greta, a seemingly ordinary French piano teacher who has lost her daughter. It seems like a match made in heaven because Frances has lost her mother and, with an absentee father, is longing for a mother figure.

It turns out that things are much more sinister. Frances discovers a shocking secret about Greta and tries to break off ties, but Greta would have none of it. Greta starts to call Frances incessantly, eventually going full stalker mode, following Frances everywhere, to work and to her house.

Boasting a virtuosic performance from Huppert, with its stylish camerawork and off-kilter soundtrack, ‘Greta’ is an elevated Hitchcockian B-thriller movie. So despite its thin character study, the movie is a whole lot of fun to watch.
