The Cairn’s life seems to be a harmonic family: The father Brad works as a stockbroker, his wife Abby takes care of their common new-born daughter Lily, and the 9-year-old Joshua is high-talented. But the appearances are deceptive. Joshua becomes gradual jealously, that his parents give the baby more attention than him. Therefore he begins to terrorize his family.
• Filmed in USA (view all.)
• 4 wins & 3 nominations (view all.)
• The role of Joshua’s young sibling was played by the real-life newborn sibling of Jacob Kogan.
• The note that Joshua leaves for his father reads: “Dad,/Eaten lunch already/and gone to/The Brooklyn Museum of Art/having fun with Nunu and Lily.” If you arrange the first letter of each line in order, it reveals an acrostic for “Death.”
