“Chloe”, directed by Canadian Atom Egoyan, was premiered at the London Film Festival. Starring Julianne Moore, Amanda Seyfried and Liam Neeson, the film is a remake of French film “Nathalie” by Anne Fontaine.
The plot involves a wife (Moore) who hires a call girl (Seifried) to “present herself” to her husband (Leeson) in order to prove that he is unfaithful to her. Icky. Even more icky when the two women launch into a series of tasteless skin flick scenes themselves. Moore looks haggard, Neeson haunted and Seifried unhappy – and that’s just the trailer. Worse, everyone is aware that this is the film that Neeson was shooting when his wife died earlier this year making the subject matter even more distasteful. (Neeson did not attend the premier.) Established stars Neeson and Moore are expected to survive catastrophic reviews and a straight to dvd release. As for starlet Seifried, the news that Mamma Mia 2 is on the way must be the only compensation for appearing in such a rotten-tomato release. Chloe will be released in France and the Netherlands next March. No other releases are on the horizon. For more information about Chloe see:
