Chloe (2010)

Directed by Atom Egoyan (THE SWEET HEREAFTER), CHLOE is an incisive look at jealousy and obsession and how it haphazardly turns a family’s routine life into a nightmare. A wife (Julianne Moore) suspects her husband (Liam Neeson) of infidelity and hires a call girl (Amanda Seyfried MAMMA MIA) to attempt to seduce him. But it quickly turns into a darkly erotic labyrinth of deceit, manipulation, erotic fantasies and danger. I was afraid the film was going the FATAL ATTRACTION route but thankfully Egoyan spare us that. Neeson has precious little to do here, the film belongs to Moore and Seyfried (very good). Well written, intelligent and a sensational score by Mychael Danna (ICE STORM).
