Format: DVD
Angelina Jolie stars as Christine Collins whose nine-year old son vanished from their Los Angeles home in 1928. She met with little cooperation from the police, and when they finally found the boy and brought him back home, she said, "That's not my son."

This movie was based on a true story and directed by Clint Eastwood in a gritty, no-frills style. There isn't a lot of action, but it definitely holds your interest until the very end. Jolie gives a strong performance as the mother who wouldn't stop looking for her son, even when she battled the corrupt police chief. Jolie is on-screen just about every minute and is a formidable screen presence. She and the rest of the cast, including John Malkovich, are all good in this very somber and intense piece.

The costumes, sets, and locations are perfectly done in 1920s style and the photography uses a lot of natural light adding to the old-fashioned feel. The movie about a mother's love and police corruption is fascinating, but it's also relentlessly grim and left me feeling quite depressed. A well-made movie, though.

Friends of mine told me this was a good film. They recommended it warmly. And I still didn't expect it to be *this* good.
The story in itself is incredible enough, I mean, of course it deserves to be recount as a story (all the events actually happened in 1920s Los Angeles). But what gripped me was the execution.
The setting is so accurate and so vivid you really think to be there. The pace of the film is just right. There isn't much action, because this is mostly an intimate story, but emotions comes to the viewer so strongly - through events and characters' actions and reactions that are always logic and never over the top - that you naturally feel involved. You naturally feel for this mother.

But I think what really involved me in the story so much are the characters and the actors.
All the actors are outstanding, in my opinion, no matter how long or short they appeared on the screen. I liked John Malkovich and Michael Kelly in particular, although they both appear on screen for limited time (Kelly only appears in the very last part of the film).
But it's Angelina Jolie's performance that really stayed with me. She was intense as Christine Collins, this single mother that fights against everyone to get her child back. She was always demurred, never over the top, and still so emotionally invested that this viewer could only root for her from start to end.

Warmly recommended.

Changeling is a gripping movie for adults - 'manna for grown ups' as one reviewer rightly called it. Angelina Jolie turns in a terrific performance as Christine Collins, a demure single mother in 1920's Los Angeles whose missing son becomes a rallying point for the oppressed citizens of LA, suffering under the boot of a ruthlessly corrupt police force and mayoralty.

But as Christine struggles with an impostor son that a disinterested LA police force has preposterously tried to fob her off with as her own there's a big twist when another young boy is arrested in a routine deportation case and does he have a story to tell. A tale so horrifying that it would instantly qualify as any parents worst nightmare. When I saw this film in the cinema the packed out audience gasped - literally gasped out loud - during the confession scene between this kid and the police officer.

Jolie has never been quite this good and though she stays commendably in character as a demure mother who doesn't want to make a fuss, she brings a fantastic larger than life movie star presence to her role that she seems able to turn on and off at will. She's a terrific actress in the body of a goddess and watching her evokes so much of the spirit of a Rita Hayworth or a Joan Crawford in their luminous prime. But she's not the only star here. One of the great pleasures of Changeling is watching so many unknown character actors given the chance to strut their stuff and, boy, do they take it. So take a bow Jason Butler Harner as Gordon Northcott, Eddie Alderson as Nothcott's in-fear-of-his-life nephew, Jeffrey Donovan as a pig-headed Oirish cop and Michael Kelly as seemingly the only honest policeman in LA. They're all fantastic.

I've got to confess...
I have a slight problem.
Here's what I do:

1) Buy lots of DVDs at once. Coming home to a bunch of post in like Christmas every day, not that I recommend this.
2) Those DVDs sit there for a while, sometimes months or years, neglected.

I did curb my addiction, but recently decided to skim through some highly favourable films on Amazon. One's I'd not watched before.

Changeling was one of those films.
However, step 2 was happening.
Earlier today, me and my girlfriend couldn't decide (or agree) on what to watch.
I suggested Big (with Tom Hanks) - another DVD that'd come through the post (though I had seen that) - and she said this. She'd watched it before and despite being very persistent with saying it was a great film, (though not fully remembering the plot) I was in one of my 'Mehhh' moods, feeling like I didn't want to watch anything drama, or heavy in plot. "BIG!" I insisted.

Anyway, we ended up flipping for it and her film (this) won out.

Skip forward a couple of hours or so and I say, "Thank you for making me watch that".

This film is absolutely incredible, and if you haven't seen it yet, do yourself a favour and see it!

Here's an overview of the plot:

Christine Collins (played by Ms. Jolie) is the (single) Mother to her only child, Walter.
The film is based on a true story, surrounding some serial killings in the 1920's.
It's not exactly what happened (I found out, after a quick check on Wikipedia) but, My God, it's a very twisty, turny, on-the-edge-of-your-seat film.
One day, Christine comes home to find her Son has gone missing.
5 months later, the LAPD (L.A. Police) contact Christine to tell her they have her Son.
