 - Oct 27, 2008
Angelina Jolie has received rave reviews for her performance in "Changeling," a film set in the 1920s about a mother who refuses to accept that a strange boy is her missing son. Angelina Jolie reenacts the real life story about a mother whose son was kidnapped; as the police try to convince her a found boy is hers, she discovers the child may belong to someone else.

The Clint Eastwood film shows Angelina Jolie in an incredible performance where she fully gets into character, making viewers believe they are seeing a glimpse back in time to 1928 LA.
