The girl ain’t right.

While we might not know the exact why until late in the film — and heavens to Betsy, I’m not spoiling one of the great bat-guano twists of all-time — it’s fairly obvious Esther has some issues.

A nine-year-old Russian girl adopted by an American family dealing with tragic loss, she’s moody, resentful, and prone to acts of violence.

And that’s on her good days.

New parents Vera Farmiga and Peter Sarsgaard think they have it under control, but that’s not the case.

Things are about to get really loopy, and, if you know me, I love loopy.
