An Irish-American psychological thriller directed by Academy Award-winning director Neil Jordan is set to be released in March 2019.
“Greta”, starring Chloë Grace Moretz as Frances, is about a sweet, naïve young lady, growing close to a widow called Greta, played by Isabelle Huppert.
Frances comes across a handbag lying idle on a New York City subway and doesn’t think twice about returning it to its rightful owner.
That owner is Greta, an eccentric French piano teacher with a love for classical music and is burdened with an aching loneliness.
Having recently lost her mother, Frances develops a deep relationship with Greta 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.
The movie also stars Belfast-born actor Stephen Rea, Maika Monroe, Colm Feore and, Zawe Ashton.
Filmed on location in Dublin, Toronto and New York City, it had its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 6, 2018.
