reviewkitten's review of Changeling


Changeling is a story that breaks your heart as it...”

Written on: 28/01/2010 by reviewkitten (295 reviews written)

Changeling is a story that breaks your heart as it follows the story of Christine Collins (Jolie), a single mother who returns home late from work one day in 1930's LA to discover that her 9 year son has vanished. Christine is determined to find her son even after the LAPD suggest that he has run away. When, after several months, they tell her that they have found her son she is ecstatic but unbeknown to her in order to deflect a glut of negative press about corruption in the LAPD they return a boy who Christine insists is not her son.

The horror that befalls Christine after this "reunion" is unbelievable but that is where this story is different from others. Changeling is based on a true life story where truth really is stranger than fiction. I won't go into what happens next but Jolie's performance is brilliant, she portrays Christine as a strong and determined woman in a male dominated world filled with corruption and poltical agenda. Her faith in the truth and justice shine through. With support from John Malkovich and Jeffrey Donovan this is a stunning film from Clint Eastwood who has directed the film perfectly. Have your hankies at the ready!
