A random act of kindness leads to obsession and grave consequences in the official trailer for the upcoming psychological thriller Greta.
"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"
Moretz and Huppert are joined by co-stars Maika Monroe, Colm Feore, Stephen Rea. Neil Jordan directs a script he co-wrote with Ray Wright.
The film is produced by Sidney Kimmel, John Penotti, James Flynn, Lawrence Bender, and Karen Richards.
Greta will be released in theaters on March 1st from Focus Features.
