Frances, a naive young woman, is trying to make it on her own in New York City. One fine day, she finds a handbag on the subway and suspecting no evil design, she brings it back to its rightful owner. In doing so, she meets Greta, an eccentric French piano teacher who adores classical music but pines away in solitude. Because Frances has recently lost her own mother, she quickly grows fond of the solitary widow. But then she discovers a dark side to Greta’s maternal kindness, as it turns out that just about everything she has told her is a lie. You can’t choose your family but you can choose your friends! Aaarrrgh! Isabelle Huppert playing another piano teacher after her psycho turn in THE PIANO TEACHER … That’s surely asking for trouble. In this suspenseful psychological thriller, the French star (ELLE, AMOUR, I ♥ HUCKABEES) is seen alongside Chloë Grace Moretz (SUSPIRIA, DARK SHADOWS, KICK-ASS 1 & 2). Signing off for direction is Irish old hand Neil Jordan. At the festival, we still remember him kindly because of BYZANTIUM (BIFFF 2013), ONDINE (BIFFF 2010), and IN DREAMS (BIFFF 1999), but also because of INTERVIEW WITH THE VAMPIRE and THE BUTCHER BOY.
