This week on FFR, we’re talking about the new film from Neil Jordan, director of The Crying Game, Interview With a Vampire and others: Greta. Greta is a psychologically terrifying tale of an innocent young woman named Frances (Chloe Grace Moretz) who befriends a lonely, older French woman named Greta (Isabelle Huppert), only to discover that she’s gotten much more than she’s bargained for as Greta’s obsession with her begins intruding on every aspect of her life. Our conversation explores the film’s place in Ebony’s beloved psychobiddy genre, its concerns with loneliness and isolation, and its focus on women. Also, Google Stadia, game preservation efforts and more in our entertainment news and FREQ-outs!
