Orphans Not Actually Sick, Twisted And Murderous, Like In “Orphan”
Breaking: orphaned children are not actually hellbent on killing their adoptive families, like Esther, the 9-year-old in the horror flick, “Orphan.”
Adoption and foster child advocates aren’t happy about how the girl is portrayed in the scary movie, and some have even started a Facebook group called “I Am Boycotting Warner Bros.’s ‘Orphan’ Movie.” Over one hundred thousand kids are in the foster care system and advocates are worried the Peter Sarsgaard/Vera Farmiga movie will reinforce negative stereotypes about the kids being problem children.
Fair enough point. While we haven’t seen the movie yet, we’re pretty sure, though, that most would-be adoptive parents are smart enough to realize their new little bundle of joy won’t be an actual demon (or whatever Esther’s problem turns out to be).
