Chloe (4 Stars)
This is an erotic thriller with a twist. Or maybe that isn't so unusual. Most of the classic erotic thrillers of the 1990's used plot twists to distract the viewer from the low budgets and poor production quality.
The Stewarts are a perfect family. David Stewart is a professor at a film school in New York. His wife Catherine is a successful gynaecologist. Their teenage son Michael is a music student. But Catherine suspects that her husband is being unfaithful to her when he returns home from work late. As we soon find out, her suspicions are unfounded, but once jealousy has taken hold in a woman's heart nothing can persuade her she's wrong. From her surgery window Catherine can see a luxury prostitute leaving a hotel with her clients every day, so she forms a plan. She hires the prostitute, Chloe, to test her husband's fidelity. That's not fair. Chloe is played by the beautiful actress Amanda Seyfried, so what man could resist her?
As expected, Chloe soon reports to Catherine that her husband has fallen prey to her powers of seduction. But it soon becomes obvious that Chloe has an agenda of her own. She becomes part of Catherine's life, seducing first Catherine and then her son.
This is a very sexy erotic thriller thriller. When you find out the plot twist it'll be obvious that there were clues right from the beginning of the film. It's a film that you will want to watch more than once.
