DVD REVIEW: No good turn goes unpunished in ‘Greta’

Bruce MillerMay 26, 2019

Leave well enough alone.

That’s the message we get from “Greta,” a creepy stalker film that could make you swear off smiling for months.

Trying to reunite a purse with its owner, a young waitress (Chloë Grace Moretz) discovers it doesn’t pay to track down folks who have lost things.

Co-written and directed by Neil Jordan, the film goes from simmer to full boil very quickly once Moretz discovers Greta (Isabelle Huppert) has pulled this purse scam on others. While looking for candles in a cupboard, she sees a lineup of green pocketbooks, each with a post-it note attached. Instead of confronting her immediately, she becomes distant and that pushes Greta into full stalker mode.
