Watched Orphan: First Kill (2022) by an author from
After escaping from an Estonian psychiatric facility, Leena Klammer travels to America by impersonating Esther, the missing daughter of a wealthy family. But when her mask starts to slip, she is put against a mother who will protect her family from the murderous “child” at any cost.

You’d think having a 26 yo reprise their role as a 12 yo would be doomed to failure but it actually works incredibly well. I was impressed.

Sadly, there is little else to recommend this. It’s barely even a thriller. Until a welcome pivot in the second act, you seriously wonder why Julia Stiles is here…
