Orphan (2009) Kate and John Coleman are rebuilding their troubled marriage. Kate had a drinking problem, but is in therapy and is doing well. She has been sober for one year. The couple decides to adopt a child. When they meet the nine-year-old Russian girl, Esther, at the St. Marina Orphanage, they immediately fall in love with the well-educated orphan. Their young son, Daniel, is hostile to his new sister; but their deaf-mute daughter, little Max, is enchanted with her - at first. Eventually, Kate begins to feel that Esther is manipulative and possibly even psychologically disturbed. John refuses to listen to his wife's misgivings, and the wounds in their marriage reopen. Kate calls Sister Abigail at the orphanage, and the nun informs her that Esther has a troubled and mysterious history. Kate delves further into Esther's past and discovers she is not at all who she pretends to be.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Esther: I like it when it's just the two of us. You don't know how long I've waited for a daddy just like you. John Coleman: Mommy too, right? Esther: I don't think Mommy likes me very much. John Coleman: Hey. That's not true, Mommy loves you. Esther: It's all right. It must be hard to love an adopted child as much as your own. John Coleman: Sweetheart, you're just as much part of this family as Danny and Max, okay? Why don't you do something nice for Mommy, show her how much you love her? Esther: That's a wonderful idea.
  • Esther: I have a special surprise for you, Mommy!
  • Brenda: Oh, look, Little Bo Peep text me - she wants her outfit back.
  • Kate Coleman: What did you do, you little bitch?
  • [to Max, after smashing Sister Abigail in the head with a hammer] Esther: Stop crying. Grab a foot, and help me get her off the road. Now!
Movie Trivia:
  • Warner Bros. edited the movie's trailer to remove Esther's line "It must be hard to love an adopted child as much as your own" after receiving numerous complaints from adoptive parents and foster care organizations. The line remains in the movie itself.
  • The photo of the Saarne Institute is actually of Alma College in St. Thomas, Ontario, Canada. The building was destroyed by fire on May 28, 2008.
  • David Johnson wrote the part of Sister Abigail with CCH Pounder in mind.
  • The scene at Max Coleman's school was filmed in Toronto, Canada. The building was Centennial College's Center for Creative Communications.
  • The language spoken by the Saarne Institute receptionist is Estonian; this is what she says: "Saarne Instituute, kas ma saan teid aidata?" (Saarne Institute, can I help you?) "Kuidas palun?" (I'm sorry?) "Ma ei saa aru. Oota üks silmapilk." (I don't understand. Wait a moment.)
