Indie Psychological Thriller Prodigy Lands On Netflix

You may recall several months back, I had the opportunity to speak with a filmmaker named Alex Haughey about his new (at the time) film Prodigy. In our discussions, we delved into inspirations for the film, the challenges, as well as the ways they were able to make the film look a hell of a lot more expensive than it actually was to make. It was a great conversation, and if you haven’t had a chance to check it out and you love the film medium, I highly recommend it.

Today, I’m happy to report an update the film has. It’s managed to outperform their expectations, and in the process, they caught the attention of Netflix. As a result, the film is now available to stream on the streaming service.

Check out the official synopsis for Prodigy down below:

“A discrete branch of the military calls upon psychologist James Fonda to take the case of a dangerous patient, nine-year-old Ellie. As their session begins, the young girl dissects Dr. Fonda’s unconventional methods, revealing her genius-level intellect. Only by challenging her to a battle of wits does Fonda begin to unravel the supernatural mystery surrounding Ellie — a deadly secret that threatens to destroy them both.”

Written and directed by Alex Haughey and Brian Vidal, the film stars Richard Neil (Veronica Mars, Horizon Zero Dawn) and introduces 9-year-old Savannah Liles in the titular role. Savannah has received universal praise for her work, and recently won both a Young Entertainer and Young Artist Award for her performance as a “miniature Hannibal Lecter”.
