A cool retro poster has been unveiled for Greta, a psychological horror from director Neil Jordan (The Crying Game). It shows the film’s leading ladies Chloe Grace Moretz and Isabelle Huppet, the former looking rather terrified.
Greata will follow a young woman (Moretz) as she befriends a lonely widow (Huppert), only to discover that she is not quite what she seems. Hence the terror she’s showing in the poster, we imagine.
A sweet, naïve young woman trying to make it on her own in New York City, Frances (Moretz) doesn’t think twice about returning the handbag she finds on the subway to its rightful owner. That owner is Greta (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.”
Check out the trailer below. It looks wonderfully weird and Huppert is certainly at her most terrifying. Everyone needs a friend, indeed.
Greta will be released in cinemas on 1st March 2019 courtesy of Focus Features.
