My partner and I just finished watching Changeling, starring Angelina Jolie and directed by Clint Eastwood. Please, oh Great Gods please, see this movie. It is stirring, heart-wrenching, and real. The story is unbelievably beautiful and brutal and a must-see for anyone that has a heart. It is uncanny, the weight of Angelina's performance in this movie. I know that this past year was a tough competition, but after seeing the film I completely understand how she was nominated for Best Actress - though, if you're going to lose, Meryl Streep is the one to lose to. I don't want to give any of the plot away, but you should absolutely take time to see this film. Now, it's not a sit down for 90 minutes, barely eat your popcorn and it's over kind of movie. No, this one makes you sit there for 2 hours and 22 minutes, but the time utterly flies.
Should you make the choice to watch the film, I would like you to consider two things:
How much we have evolved as a people since this era.
How much we have not.
I've included the trailer below to entice you just a bit more, but I'm telling you... SEE THIS MOVIE!!!
