TIFF Picks 09: Atom Egoyan’s Chloe

The fact that Egoyan’s film was not invited/or sent to Venice, is not the opening film for TIFF and is a remake on a subpar French film could all be cons, but recent word is, this might be Egoyan’s best pic since The Sweet Hereafter. Looking forward to this Canadian content.

Buzz: The fact that Egoyan’s film was not invited/or sent to Venice, is not the opening film for TIFF and is a remake on a subpar French film could all be cons, but recent word is this might be Egoyan’s best pic since The Sweet Hereafter. Looking forward to this Canadian content.

The Gist: Based on Anne Fontaine’s 2003 film Nathalie, Catherine (Julianne Moore), a successful doctor, suspects her husband David (Liam Neeson), a handsome music professor, is cheating on her. To lay her suspicions and fears to rest, she hires an irresistible young woman, Chloe (Amanda Seyfried), to test David’s fidelity. Chloe’s torrid tales of her encounters with David lead Catherine on a journey of sexual and sensual re-discovery. But by opening the door to temptation, she puts her family in great danger.
