Brilliant movie of course shows history in the making too. Angelina does give a best performance. Really enjoyed this movie.
I was prepared to not like this movie because of a slight mistrust of Angelina, but came away enthralled. If not completely won over, at least entertained , shoicked and thrilled. Beautifully played and deftly arranged, well worth a look.
Great period piece based on a true story well directed by Clint Eastwood.
I have to give credit to Clint Eastwood and his Directorship on this movie. Angelina holds a good serious character and portrays a solid role as a women victimized in a corrupt police society.
Not... Read more great for little eyes to witness what horror lies for missing kids in this movie.
Being based on fact really accentuates what went on in the 30's.
I did not expect to enjoy this movie, and was pleasantly surprised. Jolie has had a few "dudes" lately - this is definately not one of them!!!!
Angelina Jolie plays a woman with big lips who comes home from work one day to find her son missing - which is an oxymoron. The rest of the movie focuses on her trying to find the poor lad. She spends... Read more half the movie putting her hands on her head in one way or another and the other half yelling at anyone who will listen. It's an exceptional performance. Just for those of you who are wondering, I sat through 140 minutes of this film waiting for the alien (the titular "Changeling") but I didn't see it anywhere.
Very well acted by Jolie, Malkovich and many supporting actors, but otherwise it's just an above-average tear-jerker. The whole film is designed to draw out strong emotions, especially outrage at injustice... Read more. Check out the debate on the historical "accuracy" on IMDb.
Angelina acted well, and although it was a well portrayed story, I didn't like the sepia effect to make the movie look old, almost like every scene had a tinted lens in front of the camera. Not my... Read more cup of tea in terms of cinematography, but I'm not an expert. I prefer light as it is, in real life, not dimmed for effect.
An interesting story based on fact,very sad and frustrating for the mother when nobody would believe her.
Great acting. Well worth watching.
What a great movie.Wonderfully acted,true to the era it portraied.Full of tragic suspence and tear jerking moments and to top it all off Clint Eastwood was the director/producer.Pure magic.
