‘Orphan’ Movie Was ‘On The Edge Of Your Seat’ Horrifying
This new “Orphan” movie which stars Isabelle Fuhrman as Esther absolutely kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. Even before she arrived onto the scene,she had me nervous. I was wondering what the hell is this little girl going to do. It also ended with a great twist which cleared up the question, “What is wrong with Esther?”
In a brief synopsis of the film, the Coleman family decide to adopt Esther because she seemed really nice when they met her at the orphanage. They also wanted to adopt a child so they could show it the love they didn’t get to show to the baby that Kate Coleman (Vera Farmiga) miscarried.
However, it turns out that Esther had brought a few issues along with her to the Coleman home. They manifested themselves when Esther acts out by killing a couple of folks,and attempting to kill a few others. She also manipulates and schemes to turn Kate’s Husband John Coleman (Peter Sarsgaard) against her when she starts catching on to her and decides that she wants to send her back to the orphanage.
Kate eventually does some checking up on little Esther’s background which in the end reveals a crazy,interesting twist that I would have never guessed,and causes the movie to end in highly dramatic fashion. I couldn’t have asked for a better conclusion.
I thought the movie was very interesting the whole time. I was ever bored. The plot was fantastic,and done in an original way.There was no guessing in this film. It was definitely made known that Esther was evil,but why, was the mystery that was kept hidden until the end,and it was a very interesting one at that.
I also think that those adoption groups who are against this movie would definitely be able to see why this movie is completely fictional,and could in no way be interpreted to a real life situation. The ending twist revealed that point. If you want to see a scary,yet very interesting movie,definitely check out “Orphan.”
