Legendary French actress Isabelle Huppert stars alongside rising star Chloë Grace Moretz in this taut psychological thriller set in New York.
While riding the subway, young waitress Frances (Moretz) finds an abandoned handbag belonging to Huppert’s isolated widow, Greta Hideg. Upon returning the bag, Frances and Greta strike up an unlikely friendship and begin to spend time together. One evening while making dinner at Greta’s house, Frances uncovers a cupboard filled with handbags identical to the one she found on the subway. Disturbed, Frances decides to cut Greta out of her life – a decision which is not taken lightly.
What follows is a dizzying descent into obsession, control and manipulation, as well as a sly takedown of America’s ineffective justice system.
Neil Jordan (Interview with the Vampire) delivers a punchy script that gifts Huppert the opportunity to unleash a terrifying concoction of calculated evil and raw, unchained aggression – both perfectly demonstrated in a single scene set in a packed Manhattan restaurant. Seamus McGarvey’s evocative cinematography and Javier Navarette’s spiky score perfectly blend to envelop the audience in Greta’s sinister world.
Whether you’re an Huppert-obsessive or a potential new convert, come and witness one of the greatest living actresses let loose on the big screen.
