A veteran high school teacher befriends a younger art teacher, who is having an affair with one of her 15-year-old students. However, her intentions with this new "friend" also go well beyond platonic friendship.
A ballet dancer wins the lead in "Swan Lake" and is perfect for the role of the delicate White Swan - Princess Odette - but slowly loses her mind as she becomes more and more like Odile, the Black Swan.
Catherine and David, she a doctor, he a professor, are at first glance the perfect couple. Happily married with a talented teenage son, they appear to have an idyllic life. But when David misses a flight and his surprise birthday party, Catherine's long simmering suspicions rise to the surface. Suspecting infidelity, she decides to hire an escort to seduce her husband and test his loyalty. Catherine finds herself 'directing' Chloe's encounters with David, and Chloe's end of the bargain is to report back, the descriptions becoming increasingly graphic as the meetings multiply.

Mirrors are frequently featured in the film, and when they are, there is usually more than one mirror in the same shot. A prime example would be the scene in the hotel room between Chloe and Catherine. See more »
When Michael is talking to Anna via video-conferencing during their break-up, he minimizes the video-chat when he notices his mother (Catherine) peeking in to see what is going on, except when the camera angles change and he is shown running to close the door, the video-chat window is still shown on the computer screen.

How do you do this?
I try to find something to love in everybody. Even if it's a small thing. Something about the way someone smiles. There's always something, there has to be. I try to make myself generous. I do things I don't want to do. I... I think about what not to criticize. And the strangest things come back to me.
Yeah. Yeah people like you walk into my life.

I have just watched the Making Of interviews on the DVD of Chloe and am mystified as to why the director and screenwriter make absolutely no mention of the original French film "Nathalie" upon which Chloe is based. In fact, the American screenwriter has copied many of the words and situations directly from the original version, including the wife's profession of gynaecologist. I think this has to be the worst form of plagiarism ever. "Nathalie" is a far more subtle and erotic movie and I would like everyone to know that neither the story nor the screenplay of the American version originate with Erin Cressida Wilson or Atom Egoyan. It is disingenuous of these American filmmakers to not even mention the French film. How does everyone else feel about being misled?
