Movie Info & Cast
Some good deeds lead to dire consequences. The naïve Frances (Chloë Grace Moretz) has recently lost her mother and moved to New York City. She’s still trying to find her way in the big city. So when she finds a handbag on the subway, she’s pleasantly surprised when the simple kindness of returning the purse leads to a fast friendship with the lonely, older Greta (Isabelle Huppert).
The trust Frances places in Greta curdles, however, as she realizes that her new pal harbors bizarre secrets and a maniacal soul. Think of Greta like a modern version of Hansel and Gretel, in which the witch is not willing to confine her evil impulses to a gingerbread house out in the woods.

It's "re-GRETA-able to think that that's the finished product. Could have been sooooo good but, just another NETFLIX movie.
It’s a must go see movie if you want a crazy creepy movie to see me and my friend jumped adless twice
Greta is petit Guignol trying to pass for Grand, a horror flick made by people who forgot to have fun. One of them, the director, Neil Jordan, made a memorable film called “The Crying Game” almost three decades ago. This is the groaning game, an inept tale of danger, entrapment and dismemberment.
The filmmaker's expressively cockeyed impulses soon take over (he's ably assisted by the terrific cinematographer Seamus McGarvey), and the resulting craziness is quite delightful to behold in the moment and to reflect on after.
Greta is best read as tongue-in-cheek femme fun. And proof, certainly, that despite her considerable success, Huppert has not at all fallen into the trap of taking herself to seriously.
