The tragic loss of their unborn child has devastated Kate (Vera Farmiga) and John (Peter Sarsgaard), taking a toll on both their marriage and Kate’s fragile psyche as she is plagued by nightmares and haunted by demons from her past. Struggling to regain some semblance of normalcy in their lives, the couple decides to adopt another child. At the local orphanage, both John and Kate find themselves strangely drawn to a young girl named Esther (Isabelle Fuhrman). Almost as soon as they welcome Esther into their home, however, an alarming series of events begins to unfold, leading Kate to believe that there’s something wrong with Esther—this seemingly angelic little girl is not what she appears to be. Concerned for the safety of her family, Kate tries to get John and others to see past Esther’s sweet facade. But her warnings go unheeded until it may be too late…for everyone.

“Orphan” is directed by Jaume Collet-Serra (“House of Wax”), from a screenplay by David Leslie Johnson and a story by Alex Mace. The film stars Vera Farmiga (“The Departed”), Peter Sarsgaard (“Elegy”), Isabelle Fuhrman (“Hounddog”), CCH Pounder (TV’s “The Shield”) and Jimmy Bennett (“Star Trek”). Joel Silver, Susan Downey, Jennifer Davisson Killoran and Leonardo DiCaprio produced the film, with Steve Richards, Don Carmody and Michael Ireland serving as executive producers. Richard Mirisch, David Barrett and Erik Olsen co-produced. The behind-the-scenes creative team is led by director of photography Jeff Cutter, production designer Tom Meyer, editor Tim Alverson, costume designer Antoinette Messam, and composer John Ottman.
