The Orphan is a film about a family that lost a daughter that they choose to adopt an orphan.
The character development and script are believable. The sound contributed a lot to the heightening of suspense. The plot leads to a climactic ending.
Three people in the scriptures should be accorded with charity - the strangers, widows, and orphans. Unfortunately, the Orphan enforces that fear in us in accepting people into our homes. This mistrust also enforces the myth that our families are the only ones existing in this world and we don't need others. But this is totally uncalled for. Even family members could inflict violence in a domestic setting. We just need to trust one another.
