Here’s the first poster for Taylor Schilling’s movie ‘The Prodigy’
From Bloody Disgusting
Orion Pictures is tapping into the holiday spirit with the official poster art for The Prodigy, from The Pact director Nicholas McCarthy. In theaters February 8, 2019, the film follows a mother who is concerned about her young son’s disturbing behavior thinks something supernatural may be affecting him. The poster juxtaposes this perfectly with a close-up shot of “Miles”, wearing Halloween makeup to look half evil. It’s perfect. As for the trailer, it’s coming Monday.
Taylor Schilling (Netflix’s “Orange is the New Black”) stars with Jackson Robert Scott (It, AMC’s Fear the Walking Dead). Peter Mooney (Burden of Truth), Colm Feore (Thor) and Brittany Allen (What Keeps You Alive, Jigsaw, It Stains the Sands Red, Extraterrestrial) also star.
“Family” is an endearing, fun-to-watch, and occasionally cheesy story about the importance of family (as the name suggests) and work-life balance. Kate is successful in her career, evident in her position as senior vice president of her company, and does whatever it takes to get ahead of others and fulfill her ambitions, even if it means neglecting her personal life and throwing others under the bus. As a result, Kate’s coworkers dislike her, and her relationship with her brother and father are close to non-existent. Taylor Schilling puts on an excellent performance, perfectly encapsulating the socially awkward, unempathetic, and impassive Kate, with her constant blank stare and monotonous voice. One of the most noteworthy scenes occurs when, after what seems like minutes of heartfelt pleading from Kate’s brother asking her to take care of Maddie, Schilling bluntly and unemotionally replies “No.” However, Kate is somehow eventually persuaded off-screen and agrees to temporarily care for Maddie, which becomes the catalyst for the rest of a humorous plot.
