Movie Info

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 (R)-winning director Neil Jordan.

Critic Reviews for Greta

All Critics (16) | Top Critics (5)

Falls squarely in B movie territory but, by virtue of its two lead performers, winds up being far more enjoyable than it has any right to be.

A "bad" movie that's made suddenly good by the involvement of a game audience and Jordan allowing Huppert to go certifiably batshit on a doe-eyed Moretz.

September 21, 2018 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

There's something just slightly off about these characters, as if Jordan never quite figured them out, or why they need each other.

September 11, 2018 | Full Review…

There is no clear moment where Greta turns from boring stalker movie into full-blooded wack-a-doo thriller, and that is ultimately the film's downfall.

September 11, 2018 | Rating: 1.5/4 | Full Review…

Coupled with the carnage is a potent undercurrent of grief...

September 7, 2018 | Full Review…

It was, in fact, barely a thriller and while I did rattle my brain trying to make sense of what I was seeing, my nerves were fully intact at the end of the viewing.
