If you haven’t seen the 2009 horror ORPHAN and totally oblivious to Esther’s secret, then seek it out now and while there will be no spoilers here, those who know, are very curious to see exactly what a sequel (even though its a prequel), can offer now and if it can ever top that wonderful reveal from its first film.

Isabelle Fuhrman is back in the lead role alongside newcomers Julia Stiles, Rossif Sutherland, Matthew Finlan, and Hiro Kanagawa and the film is due for release on August 19th.

Here is the synopsis and trailer:

Leena Klammer orchestrates a brilliant escape from an Estonian psychiatric facility and travels to America by impersonating the missing daughter of a wealthy family. But Leena’s new life as “Esther” comes with an unexpected wrinkle and pits her against a mother who will protect her family at any cost.
