MYCHAEL DANNA's "chloe" [CD]
Mychael Danna's score for "CHLOE" getting released.
Chloe is a 2009 erotic thriller directed by Atom Egoyan, and starring Julianne Moore, Liam Neeson, Amanda Seyfried, Nina Dobrev, and Max Thieriot. The screenplay was written by Erin Cressida Wilson, based on the film, Nathalie..., written by Anne Fontaine.
StudioCanal fully financed this film, which had already made its budget back via international pre-sales. This film's United States distribution rights had also been acquired by Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions Group, which will release this film in the United States theatrically through Sony Pictures Classics; the film is receiving a limited theatrical release in the United States and Canada on March 26, 2010.
Catherine (Julianne Moore) and David Stewart (Liam Neeson) are married and have good jobs and a 17-year-old son, Michael (Max Thieriot), and live in Toronto, Ontario. David misses a flight home from New York and, as a result, a surprise party that Catherine has organized for him, and cryptically says that this was neither an accident nor on purpose. He tends to be friendly to female students and service personnel. Catherine suspects that he is having an affair.
A young call girl named Chloe (Amanda Seyfried) arranges what seems to be a chance encounter with Catherine in a hotel bathroom. Catherine hires Chloe to test David's fidelity and report back to her, but Catherine fails to instruct Chloe how far she is supposed to go if David wants to have sex. Catherine and Chloe meet repeatedly. The first time Chloe reports that he was just friendly, the second time she reports in detail a sexual encounter. Catherine has mixed feelings about the tests and tells Chloe to stop. However, Chloe continues to report encounters, Catherine continues to pay her, and she and Catherine also have sex together, which seems to have been Chloe's goal. However, she stalks Catherine with a visit to her work and an email with a photograph of the two in bed. It turns out that she made up the encounters with David. Catherine tells her to get out of her life. However, she has also sex with Michael in the parents' bed in Catherine's house, apparently in order to keep invading Catherine's life and be close to her. Catherine tells her to leave the house, which in turn upsets Michael. In a confrontation with Catherine, Chloe falls out of a window, and with a mysterious smile on her face, falls to her death.
