Greta is a psychological thriller about a young woman who becomes friends with a lonely widow who becomes obsessed with her. It was directed by Neil Jordan, who also wrote it along with Ray Wright.
Greta appeared at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 6, 2018. It was later released in theaters in the United States on March 1, 2019 by Focus Features. It was directed by Neil Jordan and produced by Lawrence Bender, Sidney Kimmel, James Flynn, and John Penotti.
In this movie, a young waitress, Frances McCullen, played by Chloë Grace Moretz, lives with her friend and roommate, Erica Penn, who is played by Maika Monroe. One day, while riding the subway, Frances finds a handbag. She discovers that it belongs to a woman named Greta Hideg, played by Isabelle Huppert, who is known for her roles in Things to Come and Elle. Greta is a piano teacher who gives private lessons. Frances also learns that Greta is a widow and that her daughter is studying in France.
Their relationship develops until Frances starts to find strange things in the house, and she tries to end the relationship. The story that follows becomes the psychological thriller.
Greta was released on the same day as A Madea Family Funeral. It has done reasonably well at the box office, receiving $4.6 million during its debut weekend.
The critical response has been mixed. It has received an aggregate score of 55% on Rotten Tomatoes. Critics were happy with the performance of Isabelle Huppert. On the other hand, it has been described as campy and formulaic. According to the Critics Consensus on Rotten Tomatoes, it is “a bonkers B movie occasionally elevated by hits A-list talent.”
Is Greta On Netflix?
Greta is not currently on Netflix.
Will Greta Come to Netflix?
If you do not want to want to wait to see Greta at home, will you be able to do so?
No, Greta will not be coming to Netflix, at least not in the near future.
Streaming is a big business, and there are several companies vying for these rights. This competition starts early as companies acquire the right to distribute films. Shortly after Greta appeared at the Toronto International Film Festival, Focus Features acquired its distribution rights for about $4 million.
Back in 2013, Focus Features signed a decade-long contract with HBO for exclusive streaming rights to its movies when they finish in theaters. This means that Netflix will not be able to acquire Greta.
On the other hand, there are other films and TV shows on Netflix that might be of interest to you. Some of them are:
- Birdbox – a Netflix post-apocalypse thriller about the survivor of a society that was driven to suicide by an ominous unseen presence.
- My Teacher, My Obsession – about a girl whose dad was an English teacher. When they changed schools, one of the students developed a disturbing infatuation with her father.
- You Get Me – a Netflix film about a girl who develops a dangerous obsession on a boy that she had a one-night stand with.
- You – a Netflix film about a bookstore manager that becomes obsessed with an aspiring writer.
