The Changeling

The Changeling starring Angelina Jolie and directed by Clint Eastwood is a tragic true story of the 1920's of a mom who never gives up hope of finding her kidnapped son.  I like history, and if you do, too, you will learn much from this sad tale that affected many southern California families.  It is a tear jerker and not for kids, but Angelina Jolie is a marvelous actress, and this is her at her best.  You will not be able to get up from your seat once this movies begins.
