Struck by a string of tragedies

Watch ‘Orphan’ on WB at 9 pm on May 18. Tragedy seems to follow nine-year-old Esther wherever she goes. She was orphaned in her native Russia. 

Her last adoptive family perished in a fire that Esther barely escaped. But now, the Coleman family has adopted her, and life is good — until a classmate takes a serious fall from a slide. Until an orphanage nun is battered to death. And until Esther’s new mom wonders if that tragic fire was an accident. The film stars Vera Farmiga, Peter Sarsgaard, Isabelle Fuhrman, CCH Pounder and Jimmy Bennett. 

On the run from the CIA

Salt is concerned about her husband’s safety and goes on the run. Her sudden change in behaviour arouses the suspicion of her colleagues. Who exactly is Evelyn Salt and what is she after? The film stars Angelina Jolie, Liev Schreiber, Chiwetel Ejiofor, August Diehl and Daniel Olbrychski.
