Changeling by definition, is a mythical creature left behind in place of a human child. A true life story of Christine Collins (Joile) whose son, Walter (Griffith) abruptly goes missing while she was at work. The LAPD has repeatedly been pronounced as corrupt and incompetent by the citizens of Los Angeles. After several months of searching, Captain J.J. Jones of the LAPD finds Walter and hands him over to Christine. Christine, however, claims that the child been brought to her is not Walter and there has been a mistake. The police refuse to buy her story and give her various medical reasons for the change in Walters appearance, memory, height and other features. Christine gains the support of Reverend Gustav Briegleb (Malkovich) who helps her to find Walter. Christine is declared mentally unfit by the LAPD and is sent to an asylum. An absolutely astounding story and something one can expect from the stable of Clint Eastwood. One of the most fantastic performances put on by Angelina Jolie till date and I cannot think of any actress who can come even close in matching her performance. A movie worth watching right till the very end, absolutely flawless. I don't think I have ever sung so many praises for any movie.

Thumbs up: Angelina Jolie all the way
Thumbs done: None whatsoever

Rating: 8.8/10
