Is there anything Julianne Moore can’t do? She’s starred in a soap opera, done some comedy, a little action and pushed the limits with a number of fairly controversial roles. Moore’s character in Chloe falls into the latter category. Catherine is in the middle of her life and struggling as the things she once loved are losing their vibrancy, particularly her marriage.
When she’s almost sure her husband, David, (Liam Neeson) is cheating on her, she makes a deal with a young prostitute named Chloe (Amanda Seyfried). Chloe attempts to seduce David on several occasions and reports back to Catherine with the details. Catherine quickly becomes conflicted eager to end the arrangement, but caught in the middle of the troubling discoveries and her own atypical intrigue.
Sounds like a classic story of amour, right? Okay, the prostitute thing may push Chloe into more divisive territory, but the element that solidifies it as a film that could suffer from backlash or gain admiration, depending on your taste in this type of material, is the girl-on-girl action. Yes, if you know just one thing about Chloe, it’s probably that it involves Moore and Seyfried getting a little naughty.
Not sure how you feel about that? Perhaps Moore can elucidate on that issue more eloquently than I have. Check out what Moore had to say about her moment with Seyfried, as well as her experience working with Neeson and director Atom Egoyan.
