Greta Entertains But Falls Short of Expectations

Starring Chloe Grace Moretz as Frances and Isabelle Huppert as Greta, Neil Jordan’s Greta follows the story of a young, naive girl who falls into the psychotic trap of a lonely, old woman living in New York. While Huppert delivers an excellent performance and the film makes an interesting connection between the psycho-thriller and rape culture, Moretz’s performance and an exhausting plot rendered most of the film unconvincing and frustrating.
