“THE TRUE STORY OF NATALIA GRACE: HOW THE FILM ‘ORPHAN’ BECAME A REAL LIFE HORROR” #WeirdDarkness
Manage episode 251708018 series 2360253
IN THIS EPISODE: In the Warner Bros film, “Orphan”, Peter Sarsgaard and Vera Farmiga star as a couple who adopt a 9-year-old girl after losing their own baby ... then slowly discover their new daughter is not nearly as innocent as she claims to be. Deciding to adopt a girl at the local orphanage, the couple are immediately drawn to a beautiful little girl by the name of Esther. But innocent-looking Esther is not what she appears to be. The wife desperately tries to get her husband and others to see past Esther's sweet facade. Now, as her warnings go unheeded... it may be too late -- for everyone. The 2009 film was a controversial one; it terrified not just moviegoers, but also adoption agencies and even the federal government. But it was just a movie. Until, ten years later… when it wasn’t.
