Reel Reviews | Greta

by Tim Gordon

A young woman befriends a lonely widow who’s harboring a dark and deadly agenda toward her in Greta.

Frances finds a handbag on the New York subway and promptly returns it to Greta, an eccentric French piano teacher who loves tea and classical music. Having recently lost her mother, young Frances strikes up a seemingly harmless friendship with the lonely and kindly widow who enjoys her company. But when Greta’s behavior becomes increasingly erratic and obsessive, Frances does whatever it takes to end the toxic relationship before things spiral out of control.

Greta is directed by Neil Jordan and co-written by Ray Wright and Jordan and stars Isabelle Huppert, Chloë Grace Moretz, Maika Monroe, Colm Feore, and Stephen Rea.

Travis Hopson and Tim Gordon join WETA Around Town host Robert Aubry Davis to review the film.
