Amanda Seyfried is branching more away from romance and comedy in her latest film, the dark thriller “Chloe.”
A remake of the French film “Nathalie,” “Chloe” tells the story of Catherine (Julianne Moore) and David (Liam Neeson), a seemingly perfect couple. But Catherine has long suspected that David is cheating on her, and when he misses a flight home for his birthday party, her suspicions only increase.
To determine whether or not David is being unfaithful, Catherine hires an escort named Chloe (Seyfried) to seduce him. Catherine tells Chloe what to do, and Chloe reports back to her. But as time goes on, their situation becomes unstable, and maybe even dangerous.
“Chloe” definitely has a strong cast in its favor. Moore and Neeson almost never pick bad movies – almost. That being said, “Chloe” could just as easily turn into a “Fatal Attraction” rehash. But the fact that the screenplay is written by Erin Cressida Wilson, whose “Secretary” was so delightfully dark and offbeat, is another positive sign.
Directed by Atom Egoyan, “Chloe” opens in limited release March 26.
