MIFF 2010 review: Chloe

5 Aug

*spoiler alert*

Girl meets hooker, hooker meets girl’s husband, hooker has sex with husband, hooker has sex with girl, hooker has sex with son, hooker didn’t have sex with husband after all, hooker dies. Girl, husband and son live happily ever after.

*spoiler finish*

An enjoyable slice of Hollywood bullshit with a strongish cast (Julianne Moore, Liam Neeson). I’m a fan of Atom Egoyan’s early work and the way they portray ambiguously sexual and compromised families, so i expect a slightky less pedestrian approach here. Pretty sure this is a remake of a French film, maybe that’s a bit gooder?

**1/2
