Greta is in theaters on March 1st, 2019.

Don’t we all want someone we can trust and be close friends with? Well in the movie ‘Greta’, Greta takes friendship to a whole new level, and it’s crazy. Going into this movie, I had NO IDEA what I was getting myself into. I have not watched any trailers or even knew what this movie was about. This movie is absolutely wacky, and not in the good way and will definitely leave its viewers to think twice about returning items found to their rightful owners.

The movie starts off with Frances McCullen (Chloë Grace Moretz) finding a purse on the subway, on her way home from waitressing. She does what any honest person would do and that is finding out who the person is and returning it. The owner of this purse is Greta Hideg (Isabelle Huppert). While returning the purse, Greta invites Frances inside her house to get to know her and soon enough they become friends. But before we know it Greta is following Frances everywhere and will not leave her alone. Frances starts doing a little digging, finding out a lot about Greta and her family. This is when things start becoming more sinister because, like Greta says in the movie, “Like chewing gum, I tend to stick around.”

This movie I would say is both psychological and thrilling. It starts out interesting but then starts to become rather silly. This movie reminds me of a Lifetime type movie. Entertaining yes, for the moment, but not good. The movie starts to become very unbelievable and silly. I laughed a lot throughout the movie, not even sure if that’s what the intention was. Brace yourselves, if you do end up watching the movie there is a very gross, graphic scene having to do with someone getting injured. It was very dramatic and hard to look at, for me at least.

Greta hits theatres this weekend. I wouldn't be rushing to see it, however there were many people in the theatre the night of this screening that enjoyed it and had lots of fun with it.

Rating: 2 out of 5
