I had never seen this movie but I watched it. It was pretty good. A reader recommended it to me after reading my book called The Tree: The First Book of the Chronicles of Ana.
In some ways Ana and Cody are alike and other ways they aren’t. They’re both gifted. They both can see demons.
In this unique, often uncomfortable cross between The Omen and Touched by an Angel, Maggie O’Connor suddenly becomes a mother when her drug-addicted sister, Jenna, abandons her autistic newborn daughter, Cody. For the next six years, Maggie raises Cody with love and understanding. But the one thing she couldn’t possibly understand is Cody’s special giftedness that simultaneously makes her a holy messenger for God and a dangerous threat to Satan’s earthly kingdom. With Herod-like zeal, a Satanic cult led by charismatic self-help guru Eric Stark has been kidnapping and murdering children born on December 16, 1993. Their quest? Find the “chosen one” and either turn her to the dark side or destroy her. It’s up to Maggie and former seminary student-turned cop John Travis (who specializes in combating ritual sacrifice and occult crimes) to rescue Cody from the clutches of evil before an appointed eve on which the forces of heaven and hell will surely collide.
Being that they are both gifted they have psychos wanting to kill them for their gifts are the main similarities between Ana and Cody. Ana isn’t Autistic. Cody is. They both have aunts who will do anything to protect them. Ana’s parents aren’t drug users as Cody’s Mom. They both are visited by angels. They can be scary little girls when they need to be.
So, I will say the reader is right; there are lots of similarities but yet many differences between the two little girls.
