Chloe stars Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson, Julianne Moore and is directed by Atom Egoyan and is a Hollywood remake of French movie, Nathalie.which was written by Anne Fontaine.
Synopsis: Chloe also stars Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore and tells the story of what seems to be a married couple in the form of Catherine (Moore) and David (Neeson). Seemingly happily married with a talented teenage son, they appear to have an idyllic life. But when David misses a flight and his surprise birthday party, Catherine’s long simmering suspicions rise to the surface.
Suspecting infidelity, she decides to hire an escort (Seyfried) to seduce her husband and test his loyalty. Catherine finds herself ‘directing’ Chloe’s encounters with David, and Chloe’s end of the bargain is to report back, the descriptions becoming increasingly graphic as the meetings multiply.
Chloe is a rather intense and dark movie from the opening. In fact the direction, and specifically the lighting is something that makes this movie work so well. Seyfried is believable as the call girl that she portrays and I love the awkward interaction that she has with Julianne Moore with Liam Neeson playing somewhat of a supporting-actor role rather than the leading man that we’re used to. Most the dialogue in the movie is exchanged between Moore and Seyfried but this was fine with me as they bounced off one another extremely well.
Although rather predictable, Chloe ticks all the boxes for decent erotic thriller and is a movie and if you want to see Julianne Moore in yet another good acting role, then this is for you.
