Chloe (2009)

Writer: Erin Cressida Wilson (screenplay), Anne Fontaine (the original movie "Nathalie")
Director: Atom Egoyan
Starring: Julianne Moore, Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson

a woman in her 40's (?) thinks her husband is having an affair. she hires an escort to approach him to see how he reacts.

The Woman
shme. i was unimpressed. i remember there being a lot of commotion when this came out, but i don't see why. this is pretty much the same concept as "fatal attraction".  change the man with a woman, and make her pay her stalker to sleep with her husband. am i giving away too much? i don't think so. it's pretty evident that there is an obsession the young escort holds about the red-headed gynecologist. "fatal attraction" had a better ending though. there was more conviction in it. i didn't get the actions of chloe at the end, i mean i guess she will be in julianne moore's head for the rest of time, hence the final shot, but there were other ways to get that same result. she just seemed so scheming and manipulative that the end doesn't make sense for her character.

julianne moore's character bothered me too. boo-hoo i'm middle aged and can't relate to anything in my rich ass life. i'm not young anymore. i don't feel hot even though i'm red headed and skinny and rich and still hot. boo-hoo. maybe your life is so messed up because you don't talk to anyone in your family dumb ass. i realize there would not be a movie if the people in said movie spoke to one another, but i can still be annoyed.

i spent most of the time trying to figure out what city thy were in. i still don't know. my theory is chicago, because it definitely wasn't new york, and it was cold so it wasn't west, and the only major city where it is cold and dreary was chicago. the rendezvous spot was the garden in "airborne" and that took place in cincinnati, but they could have been lying. maybe it was philidelphia? i don't know why i need this question answered. i'm looking it up. toronto? they were supposed to be canadian? canadian people aren't unhappy. they don't cheat on their spouses. do they even need gynecologists in canada?
