Chloe Moretz (born 10.2.1997)
Chloe Moretz is an American actress, best known for her role as Hit-Girl in Kick-Ass.

Personal Life & Childhood: Chloe Moretz was born in Atlanta, Georgia, to McCoy and Teri Moretz. Her mother is a nurse practitioner and her father is a plastic surgeon. In interviews, she has stated that her family is 'very Christian'. Her elder brother Trevor Duke Moretz is her acting coach and often accompanies her on business when her parents are unable to attend with her.

In 2001, Chloe moved to New York with her mother and her brother Trevor, when he was accepted into a professional performing arts school. It was this that originally sparked her interest in acting. It was when the Moretz family moved to Los Angeles in 2003 that Chloe's own Hollywood career began.

Acting Career: Chloe's first role in Hollywood was playing Violet in two episodes of The Guardian, created by David Hollander. Her debut film role was playing Molly in Heart of the Beholder.

When she landed her second role, in Amityville Horror, with Ryan Reynolds and Melissa George, Chloe Moretz earned herself a Young Artist Award nomination. Following on from the nomination, she started to land a number of guesting roles on TV series, such as My Name Is Earl (starring Jason Lee) and Desperate Housewives. She also landed a role in Big Momma's House 2, starring Martin Lawrence and Nia Long. In addition to this, she also voiced the character of Darby in the animated version of My Friends Tigger and Pooh.

In 2009, Chloe appeared in (500) Days of Summer, starring Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.

2010 saw Chloe Moretz appear in the Matthew Vaughn directed comic book adaptation Kick-Ass, which also starred Nicolas Cage and Aaron Johnson. The script was written by Jane Goldman, who is married to Jonathan Ross and the film was co-produced by Brad Pitt. On its release, many viewers were shocked by the bad language used by the Hit-Girl character, though her performance was also praised by a number of critics. For the film, she trained with Jackie Chan so that she could perform all of her own stunts.

Later in 2010, Moretz also took the lead role in Let Me In, playing a 12 year old vampire. The film was a remake of the Swedish film Let The Right One In. She was also cast as Ann in the psychological thriller The Fields. It was also announced that she will be playing the role of Isabelle in an adaptation of The Invention of Hugo Cabret, directed by Martin Scorsese. Chloe has also been announced as the lead role in the film version of Emily the Strange.

Dark Places - Clips

Libby Day is a fragile and unemployed woman struggling to get away from the demons of her past. As a child of just 7, she bore witness to the violent murder of her mother and two sisters and even stood up in court to accuse her older brother Ben of the crimes. People were happy to take her word for it when it was unearthed that he was involved in Satanic activity, but now more than 20 years on the whole trauma is finally back for a visit with consequences no-one could've foreseen. Broke after living off charity funds all her life, she readily accepts a cash payment to make an appearance at a meeting of the Kill Club; a group specialising in murder mysteries and who have a particular interest in the case of her family - namely because they do not believe her brother was the killer. While sceptical of their thoughts, she soon agrees to help them pick apart what happened, re-visiting her memories of that fateful night and even seeing her brother for the first time since his trial.

The 5th Wave Trailer

Cassie Sullivan is only 16-years-old but her fighting spirit and courage has left her as one of the only survivors on a demolished Earth. The world has been taken over by alien forces known only as The Others, and they have launched a strategic attack on the planet in order to gain ownership. First came the darkness as the mothership wiped all power from the globe; the second wave brought total devastation in the cities, flooding everything in sight; and with the third wave came an airborne infection so deadly it took out whole nations in months. It wasn't long before they launched their invasion, killing any survivors and possessing human beings as hosts to walk among people in secret. Now what's left of the world is preparing for what may be the most apocalyptic wave of all, but the strongest people have survived and they're not ready to give up their home just yet. Cassie knows to trust no-one, but when she meets another apparent survivor, she knows she has to put her faith in him if she wants to find her missing brother.

Dark Places Trailer

Libby Day is a young woman, still permanently scarred from the events of her childhood. As a 7-year-old girl living in Kansas, she witnessed the brutal slaughter of her family, only weeks after discovering a bizarre interest of her brother Ben's and evidence that he practiced Satanism. After she accused Ben, then 16-years-old, of murder, he was locked up for life and her name went down in crime history. It left her with money from a charitable fund and royalities from her autobiography, but now in her early 30s she's completely broke. Soon though she meets Lyle Wirth, a member of a ghoulish group named The Kill Club, full of crime obsessed wannabe detectives who enjoy solving vicious crimes. They offer her money to help them solve what really happened when she was a girl, because hardly any of them believe her brother was the perpetrator of the massacre. She's sure it was him, but now she's forced to return to that time in her life and remember exactly what happened in the moments leading up to the tragedy - and that gets even more complicated when she finally visits Ben in prison.

Clouds Of Sils Maria Trailer

Maria Enders is an ageing actress whose best known role was that of Sigrid in the 20 year old play 'Maloja Snake'. The play centres on the relationship between two women - the young and manipulative Sigrid and her older boss Helena, who eventually commits suicide under Sigrid's destructive influence. Enders is now being scouted again for a revival of the production, though this time in the role of Helena. She is reluctant to take on the project, but does so with the encouragement of her trusted young assistant Valentine. Soon she meets a rising starlet named Jo-Ann Ellis who is to play the new Sigrid, but Maria finds her rude and as destructive as her forthcoming character. Soon the pressure and uncomfortable similarities to herself she sees in Jo-Ann get too much for Maria, who's already overcome with grief following her divorce and the death of a friend. Plus, she starts to feel like she could be losing Valentine, who's beginning to think there's something unhealthy about Maria's reliance on her.

Clouds Of Sils Maria Review


An intriguing Chinese box of a movie, this slightly too-clever drama unpicks the layers of identity that are concealed behind the image of a celebrity. It's so knowing that it can't help but find revelatory meaning here and there, and the performances are raw and fascinating. There's also spectacular scenery and some darkly swelling emotions. But the themes are pushed a bit too hard, and the plot is enigmatic and oddly unresolved.

At the centre is Maria (Juliette Binoche), a famous actress who is aware that as she ages she's entering a new phase in her career. She's headed with her personal assistant Val (Kristen Steward) to a special event in Sils-Maria, Switzerland, to honour Wilhelm, the director who made Maria a star. But Wilhelm dies just before they arrive, so the event turns into a memorial instead. At the funeral, theatre director Klaus (Lars Eidinger) approaches Maria about starring in a new version of Wilhelm's iconic play Maloja Snake, which refers to an unusual cloud formation in this Alpine region. But this time Maria would play the older woman, while rising-star Jo-Ann (Chloe Grace Moretz) takes the ingenue role that sparked Maria's career. While Jo-Ann catches headlines for her bad-girl antics, Maria asks Val to help her get a grip on the alien older character she will be playing.

The story spirals out from here with swirling angles of meaning, as the play within the film becomes entangled with the contrasting public and private lives of the celebrities. Thankfully, even though everything is very pointed, the actors deliver remarkably off-handed performances that are very easy to identify with, revealing their characters' private thoughts and insecurities. There is of course also a further meta-level to all of this, as Jo-Ann's paparazzi-baiting lifestyle echoes experiences Stewart herself has had.

The Tale Of The Princess Kaguya Review


Like The Wind Rises, this Oscar-nominated Studio Ghibli animation is a proper cinematic epic, telling a sprawling story with artistry, invention and vivid characters that leave most Hollywood animated movies in the dust. It's based on a 10th century Japanese folktale that's packed with resonant themes, and it's been animated in a way that makes it look like a childhood storybook come to life. So even if it feels rather long at 2 hours 17 minutes, the visual minimalism is relentlessly beautiful.

The story begins in the countryside, where farmer Okina (James Caan in the English-language version) finds a tiny girl (Chloe Grace Moretz) in a bamboo stalk. Believing her to be a princess, he raises her with his wife Ouna (Mary Steenburgen). When he finds silk and gold in his bamboo grove, Okina decides that the gods want them to raise the now-teen girl in a more regal setting, so they all move to the capital, where she's officially named Princess Kaguya and becomes the most eligible girl in the kingdom, attracting offers from five wealthy men, plus His Majesty (Dean Cain) himself. But Kaguya is longing for the quieter life in the country, and misses her childhood pal Sutemaru (Darren Criss).

As it develops, the story becomes deeper and richer, offering hints as to where the events are headed, although nothing prepares us for the final-act sequence, which feels almost anachronistic in its surreally eclectic splendour. But by then, we have become completely engulfed in Kaguya's story, identifying with her longing to reconnect with the friends who used to call her "L'il Bamboo" because she grew up much more quickly than they did. This tension between sophisticated high society and rural simplicity adds an extra layer of meaning to the entire film, as does the running commentary about Japan's gender politics. And the hint of romance between Kaguya and Sutemaru offers further subversion of the social order.

When he took the girl home, he adopted her as his daughter, and decided that she must be a princess. The princess began to grow at an alarming rate, soon becoming a young woman. One day, the bamboo cutter discovered another glowing stalk and once again, decided to chop it down. Inside was enough gold for him to build a palace for his princess. But a princess with a palace needs a prince, and the little princess wanted only to return to her friends. The punishment for dishonouring the prince's request would be death, so the princess was forced to embark on a journey through love, life, and Japan, in search of her heart's desire.
