Movie: Orphan: First Kill
After orchestrating a brilliant escape from an Estonian psychiatric facility, Esther travels to America by impersonating the missing daughter of a wealthy family. An unexpected twist pits her against a mother (Julia Stiles) who will protect her family from the murderous "child" at any cost. Improbably, the role of Esther, played in the original by 10 year-old Isabelle Fuhrman is once again played by Fuhrman in the prequel, this time as a 25 year-old using forced perspective, oversized props, body doubles, etc. [more inside]
Devastated by the loss of their unborn baby, Kate (Vera Farmiga) and John (Peter Sarsgaard) decide to adopt a child. At the orphanage, both feel drawn to a little girl (a then-ten-year-old Isabelle Fuhrman) named Esther, and soon the couple take their new daughter home. But when a dangerous series of events unfolds, Kate begins to suspect that there is something evil lurking behind the child's angelic exterior. Note: a prequel with a now 25 year-old Isabelle Fuhrman playing a younger version of the same character, is in theaters and streaming this Friday. [more inside]
