Okay. For all of you that got your panties in a bunch over the representation of adoption in the film Orphan …take a big deep breath. The horror/thriller has a big and I mean big twist at the end. A twist so unreal and completly unplausible that the idea of boycotts, protests and that the adoption community would be upset seems silly albetit well intentioned. Wanna know the reported twist ? (SPOILER ALERT ) Don’t read past the below trailer if you don’t want to know. (Via Gawker)
The Orphan ain’t a kid at all!
“Esther is really a 33-year-old woman who was born with proportional dwarfism which causes her to have the appearance of a child. She also happens to be a former prostitute, who had wealthy pedophiles for clients. The reason why she has her neck covered is because she was once in asylum and she struggled so much in her straitjacket that it left with her deep scars on her neck.”
Yup. The “Orphan” is actually a ex-hooker drawf in her 30s. Oh Hollywood, you so silly. Sadly, knowing this twist actually makes me want to see the film just to see how they lay out a plot that outrageous.
Does knowing this ending make you want to see the film more or less?
