Fans of psychological thrillers will appreciate Chloe, a darkly erotic jump-fest, that turns the usual ‘cheating hubby' story on its head.
When David (Neeson) misses his flight home for his surprise birthday party, his wife Catherine (Moore) chances upon a text message from another woman. Catherine's suspicions are further compounded by David's flirtatious behaviour towards any attractive young woman he comes across.
Following a chance meeting with beautiful young call girl Chloe (Seyfried), Catherine takes the step of requesting that Chloe go all out to seduce David, to see if he'll take the bait in a test of their marriage.
When Chloe tells Catherine that she's actually managed to entice David into a relationship, Catherine finds herself so consumed by intrigue over her husband's new affair that she continues her arrangement with Chloe - a decision that dissolves into a cataclysm of complexity as time goes on.
Moore shines in her portrayal of Catherine as a real woman dealing with the insecurities of trying to grow older gracefully, whilst the pouty lipped, doe-eyed Seyfried is perfectly at ease in her role of super-seductress.
Overall, Chloe is a pretty explicit flick that could easily have descended into trashiness, but for the thrilling storyline and strong cast.
This is a film that will engage from start to finish, not to mention make you view monogamy as the best route!
