At first, Clint Eastwood's CHANGELING could appear to be following too closely in the footsteps of his earlier Oscar winner, MYSTIC RIVER, since both films center on a missing child. But while his previous film was based on a Dennis Lehane novel, CHANGELING carries a particular weight because it is based on a true story, and one that isn't largely known. Angelina Jolie stars as Christine Collins, a single mother working in 1928 Los Angeles when her son goes missing. A boy is returned to her months later by the police, but she is shocked and disheartened when she realizes that the boy isn't her son. Joined by a crusading pastor (John Malkovich), Christine battles for justice against the corrupt L.A.P.D. while she continues to search for her child. Eventually her fight against the cops lands her in a mental hospital, where she is surrounded by others with a similar plight. At times, CHANGELING is incredibly difficult to watch. Jolie gives an authentic, anguished performance, and the on-screen tragedy is quite disturbing, largely because of its basis in reality. But Eastwood has crafted another Oscar-worthy film that is certainly worth sitting through, even if a tissue or two is required. Screenwriter J. Michael Straczynski had been best known for his work in science fiction (BABYLON FIVE) and graphic novels, but he makes an adept transition to feature drama with this film. Its unusual focus--on the victim and her struggle for justice, rather than on the criminal and the crime--brings further depth to the film. As always, Amy Ryan (an Oscar nominee for GONE BABY GONE) perfectly morphs into her role (this time as a prostitute imprisoned in the mental hospital), and the film's many child actors are compelling to watch.

  • Deceiving

    Excellent film. Twisted ending. Good film, though I do not like Angelina Jolie, she is definitely over rated.

  • Heartbreaking Story

    Not being a die-hard Angelina Jolie fan, I was highly impressed with this movie. She perfectly depicted the agony and terror that this woman went though and the terrible things the cops did to her. The last reviewer is crazy, this movie was wonderful and having seen it with Jolie I can't imagine another actress doing it as well. She had the perfect look, attitude and demeanor that you would imagine a woman back in the 20's dealing with this situation would have. The sincerity of how she acted the part was amazing. It really breaks your heart after watching this movie to imagine that this was a true story and that the police were actually this cruel and uncaring.

  • Too Overrated

    In my opinion, JOLIE was misplaced in acting as a series actor--Bottom line, she was terrible. if Angelina, isn't showing her body off, which is the only way she became an actor, she can't act her way out of a paperbag. She was so phony and over did, this very moving film. Why in the world she was made to star in this movie is beyond me. She just could not make anyone watching it believe her, she overacted, and made the film so hum-drum , I had to fight to even watch it through---she is That BAD!. Next time they remake this film, they hopefully cast a skilled actress who can ,move the audience.--PASS ON THIS MOVIE IT IS A BOMB!
