The Orphan

Released 2009 Rating 15 in UK
Director Jaume Collet-Serra Writer/s David Johnson
Starring Vera Farmiga, Peter Sarsgaard, Isabelle Fuhrman
Source of story Original screenplay
Elevator Pitch A family whose third child is a stillbirth decide to adopt, and are charmed by a nine year old girl they find in an orphanage – but she is creepy!
Content Sustained tension from quite close to the start. For people with children probably best to stick to the rating. There are unrevealing sex scenes.
A View A predictable plot but a reasonable watch. I was most frightened when Kate is driving through the snow in heavy traffic, while on her mobile.
