Becky and I went to see the new Angelina Jolie movie The Changeling at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO yesterday. I haven’t written a review on our trip to see High School Musical, but I wanted to get this review up tonight. The MSN movie website at The Changeling describes the movie as follows:
“Inspired by actual events that occurred in 1920s-era Los Angeles, Clint Eastwood’s The Changeling tells the story of a woman driven to confront a corrupted LAPD after her abducted son is retrieved and she begins to suspect that the boy returned to her is not the same boy she gave birth to. The year was 1928, and the setting a working class suburb of Los Angeles. As Christine said goodbye to her son Walter and departed for work, she never anticipated that this was the day her life would…”
The Changeling is Directed by Clint Eastwood and is inspired by a true story. The critics apparently didn’t like this movie, but I think everyone who saw it in our theater liked it. The movie is really unbelievable. I don’t want to go into too much detail of the film beyond what you see on the Previews because what happens in this movie is downright disturbing.
Angelina Jolie should win an Oscar for her performance in this movie. John Malkovich was great in the movie too and it was very well Directed. The LAPD was run by criminals back in 1928 and what happens to Christine Collins for trying to find her missing son was unbelievable. However, there are surprises in this movie that are completely horrifying. I left this movie feeling terrible about what took place and unable to shake a couple scenes from my mind.
If you have kids this movie will probably rock your world as it did mine and Becky’s because of what happens to Walter. The fact that it takes place in 1928 compared to what goes on in our society today will make you want to think twice about not keeping an eye on your kids.
Becky and I both thought it was a Don’t Miss It because the story is just so powerful.
