CHANGELING

Changeling, director Clint Eastwood's latest beautifully crafted moody, melancholy period drama -- with its smooth polished pacing and casting -- shows an episode in California's history about a gripping story of a mother's missing son.

It's based on facts that can truly be said to be stranger than fiction, and still retains its interest to this day.

Many people will leave the theater believing this can't be true, yet there are historical accounts and records.

Thanks to Clint's superb talent and paying attention to details, you sure don't want to miss this one.

Set in the late 20s, Changeling offers insight into one of the strangest cases in LAPD history -- the disappearance of a young boy and his return as someone else.

Angelina Jolie turns out an Oscar-worthy performance as a distraught mother searching for the truth in a chaotic political world full of falsehoods and hoaxes.

It's a deftly directed period piece that is both beautiful and disturbing.

Changeling is a new movie produced and directed superbly by Clint Eastwood.

He continues his creative winning streak, with a well-structured precision & straight-forward style.

The film is based on events that took place in Los Angeles in 1928.

Angelina Jolie stars and shows a mighty powerful heart in what could be her second Oscar-nominated performance.

The story is fictionalized, but is a historically detailed examination of L.A.'s tainted, criminally corrupt past.
