Focus Features has shared the first trailer for Neil Jordan’s psychological thriller Greta, due out March 1, 2019.
The film, co-written by Jordan and Ray Wright, focuses on Frances (Chloë Grace Moretz), a “sweet, naïve young woman trying to make it on her own in New York City,” per its synopsis, and her relationship with the titular Greta (Isabelle Huppert), “an eccentric French piano teacher with a love for classical music and an aching loneliness.” As the two become closer, Frances uncovers a web of deceit and manipulation put in place by the increasingly unhinged Greta. The film also stars Maika Monroe, Colm Feore and Stephen Rea.
Jordan first gained recognition for his Academy Award-winning 1992 thriller The Crying Game, and that film’s potent mix of timely social commentary and psychological suspense seems to be par for the course here.
