Plot Summary

In her much-anticipated foray into the horror-thriller genre, Golden Globe and Emmy nominee Taylor Schilling stars in THE PRODIGY as Sarah, a mother whose young son Miles' disturbing behavior signals that an evil, possibly supernatural force has overtaken him. Fearing for her family's safety, Sarah must choose between her maternal instinct to love and protect Miles and a desperate need to investigate what or who is causing his dark turn. She is forced to look for answers in the past, taking the audience on a wild ride; one where the line between perception and reality becomes frighteningly blurry.

Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia Miles is compared to David Bowie due to having two different coloured eyes, commonly known as Heterochromia. However, David Bowie didn't have this condition. He actually had Anisocoria; one pupil is bigger than the other. It was this condition that made his eyes look different colours. See more »
Goofs David Bowie's eyes were the product not of heterochromia but a teenage fistfight with his school pal (and, later, lifetime artistic partner) George Underwood over a girl that resulted in anisocoria, a condition in which a person's eyes have different-size pupils. See more »
