Last but not least is our pick for tonight which is about a young woman in New York City (Chloë Grace Moretz) whose life becomes a nightmare after she meets a lonely older woman (Isabelle Huppert) who becomes obsessed with her.

Directed by Ireland's own Neil Jordan (The Crying Game), Greta is a notch above many similar stalker thrillers mainly thanks to Huppert's multi-layered turn as the villainous title character who she manages to make funny, terrifying and human all at once.
