Chloe Moretz shot to stardom earlier this year when she took on the role of Hit Girl in Kick Ass but now she is back in a very different role.
She stars as Abby in an American adaptation of Let The Right One In, a Swedish movie that was released last year. Directed by Matt Reeves, Let Me In also stars Kodi Smit-McPhee and Richard Jenkins and looks set to be one of the more interesting movies of the autumn.
Twelve-year old Owen is viciously bullied by his classmates and neglected by his divorcing parents. Achingly lonely, Owen spends his days plotting revenge on his middle school tormentors and his evenings spying on the other inhabitants of his apartment complex.
His only friend is his new neighbour Abby, an eerily self-possessed young girl who lives next door with her silent father.
A frail, troubled child about Owens’s age, Abby emerges from her heavily curtained apartment only at night and always barefoot, seemingly immune to the bitter winter elements.
Recognizing a fellow outcast, Owen opens up to her and before long, the two have formed a unique bond. When a string of grisly murders puts the town on high alert, Abby’s father disappears, and the terrified girl is left to fend for herself.
Still, she repeatedly rebuffs Owen’s efforts to help her and her increasingly bizarre behavior leads the imaginative Owen to suspect she’s hiding an unthinkable secret.
Let Me In is released 5th November. Take a look at some more clips from the movie:
