El Orfanato

Our landlord, Medea, recommended a movie to us a while back. Her enthusiasm for the movie caused us to really want to see it.
So we did.

She told us it is called "the Orphanage" and I remember her mentioning something about subtitles... Little did I know there wasn't a word of English in this movie! It is entirely in Spanish - hence it's title.

This movie was so good! It was weird that a genuinely scary movie could also have such a great story (Whitney cried at the end).
It was creepy, is was funny, it was a Spanish lesson... all the things I could ever want in a movie. There aren't many movies that I would watch again right after seeing it the first time, but this one I would. Let us know who's in and we'll have a private screening at the McWhorter cottage (you bring the bagel bites).
