Well to do gynaecologist Julianne Moore suspects that her husband, music Professor Liam Neeson, is having an affair so she engages prostitute Amanda Seyfried to meet him with a view to seeing whether he is tempted by her.
The arrangement leads to all manner of unexpected sexual liaisons. If this sounds like a French situation then it shouldn't surprise that 'Chloe' is a Canadian adaptation of the earlier French film 'Nathalie'.

Set in a snow bound and wet Toronto this is a stylish thriller of sorts, slow moving and mysterious in the French style. Not everyone's idea of fun, especially some of the sex scenes and the somewhat off kilter ending but I enjoyed the journey. Moore and Neeson are their usual impressive selves and Seyfried sheds her 'Mamma Mia' image completely.
