Orphan

Continuity mistake: After Esther suffocates Daniel in the hospital, Kate slaps Esther in the face. The hospital staff then hold down Kate and she drops her iPhone, screen down. The iPhone starts ringing, even though the screen is facing the floor. In the next scene, it is still ringing, but with the screen facing upwards.

Other mistake: When Daniel is playing Guitar Hero with his friends, after he and his friends leave the game to go outside, if you look closely at the TV, you can see that the game is still playing (notes are still being strummed) even though there is no one at the controls. (00:23:05)

Continuity mistake: When Esther is in her room and you are seeing that she is not a little girl but in fact an adult, she takes her teeth out. They're the nice teeth covering her bad ones. However when she sets them down, you can see that they are the wrong teeth. She has taken her bad prop teeth out and set them down, when it should have been the nice ones. You can see right before she takes them out that her teeth look nice. When she sets them down they are the bad set.

Trivia: When Kate shouts "I'm not your f*****g mommy" to Esther, this is the same final dialogue of interaction between the antagonist and protagonist as in "The Ring 2".


Esther: I think people should always try to take the bad things that happen to them in their lives, and turn them into something good. Don't you?

Esther: Please... Don't let me die, Mommy.
Kate Coleman: I'm not your fucking mommy!

Esther: Kate, it's too late. It's your own fault. You took your family for granted.
Kate Coleman: What do you mean?
Esther: What are you going to do? Hit me?

Question: Can someone verify the number of gunshots fired by Esther at the end of the film? I thought I counted 7 and I assume a revolver has only 6 bullets in the cylinder.

Chosen answer: The scene when Esther takes 4 bullets out of the gun and asks Max if she wants to play shows that the gun has a 5 bullet capacity. Esther fired 1 bullet at Kate's shoulder, 1 at a glass when Kate was on top of the glass roof and 3 other bullets at Max. At the end of the movie Max fires an extra bullet.

Question: Maybe I missed something, but how was Esther able to fool everyone practically all her life and hide the fact that she's a 33-year old sociopath? When Kate finally learns the truth by getting the phone call, they show a photo of the "real" Esther, so at least those records of her exist somewhere. How could the boarding school not have known her true identity?

Chosen answer: The boarding school was going by the falsified records that Esther had with her. They did not suspect anything, so they had no reason to dig any further at the time.

Question: When Kate goes through Esther's bible there are several photos of different men inside the book. Who are these men?

Chosen answer: These are the husbands she's seduced from the other families she's lived with.
