Chloe

Rated R 96 min. 2010



A poor man's Poison Ivy , this is stock erotica gussied up with a top-shelf cast, name-brand director, soft-focus lighting and contemporary, often translucent set designs. Otherwise, it's a Skinemax refugee whose art house aspirations cannot compensate for a hammy, surprisingly tepid script that is high on titillation but low on dramatic tension. When Catherine (Julianne Moore), a Toronto-based gynecologist, suspects her husband, David (Liam Neeson), of cheating, frustration leads her to enlist the services of a call girl, Chloe (Amanda Seyfried), to seduce him and report back her findings. This is a return of sorts for director Atom Egoyan to the voyeuristic, sex thriller roots of his breakout film, Exotica. Likewise, screenwriter—and former Duke professor—Erin Cressida Wilson rehashes the prurience found in the more interesting script she wrote for Secretary. Ultimately, however, the story here is one that begins benignly before turning trashy and, finally, just plain silly.
