This research applied descriptive-qualitative and quantitative approach. The data were taken from the utterances spoken by the family characters in the Orphan movie.

Indirect refusal expression has the highest frequency in the occurrence in the family characters’ conversation especially avoidance strategy. It is used for avoiding a conflict from the interlocutor. Secondly, there are four strategies to employ refusal expression, namely, negative politeness (indicating reluctance, being indirectness, using question and using hedge), positive politeness (giving reason, seek agreement, promise, avoid disagreement and avoid reciprocity), bald on-record (on-record) and off record (giving hints). Negative politeness has the highest occurrence to employ refusal expression. Thirdly, there are three functions of refusal expression which occur in the movie, that is, request, suggestion and offer.
