I’ve been enjoying writing reviews with no pressure and I want thank Baron for that. Next month I will go back to what I really like which is kids horror/Halloween. This month I’m writing about more of suspenseful film than horror which in this case is Greta. I first saw it in theaters with my husband in 2018. It’s about a lonely, naive girl and the trouble she gets herself into while trying to do a good deed. The film was distributed by Focus Features and was directed by Neil Jordan.

Greta opens with Frances (Chloë Grace Moretz) riding on the subway; when her stop comes, she starts to exit and finds a purse just left on a seat. Now any logical person would have either left it there or taken it to the lost and found, but Frances decides to take it home. Her roommate Erica (Maika Monroe) and asks here why on earth she brought it home and she wants to spend the money inside it, but Frances wants to return it to the owner from the address inside the bag. Even though she was advised against it she goes to the bag owner’s home which is Greta (Isabelle Huppert). All seems well; Greta is thankful and invites her in and the two start to form a bond/friendship. Frances goes back again and that’s when she finds other bags, and this really wasn’t a “lost purse” realizing the trap she tries to distance herself from Greta who then begins to stalk and eventually drug her. Erica and Frances’ father Chris (Colm Feore) then start searching for her which lead to complex complications. So how did Frances escape? You will have to watch and find out.

There are many people out there who like to help others which is a good thing, but this movie teaches you to be more responsible doing so. Sadly, you can’t trust everyone that comes your way but those who do like to help others especially in a big city like New York City. Just leave it on the seat or take it to the lost and found.
