After being busy for the past few weeks, it was quite a change to be able just to relax and watch a movie at home. Marco recommended this movie so after dinner (pork chop and unedible tomato & eggs), we watched “Changeling”.
Changeling is a drama film directed by Clint Eastwood. The story begins in March 1928 in Los Angeles, California. Christine Collins (Jolie) is a single mother of a 9 year old boy named Walter. She’s working in a telephone company as switchboard manager when one day she came home later than usual to find his son missing. She phoned the police asking for help but was initially rebuffed due to the 24 hour policy for missing persons. At that time, the LAPD was considered a corrupt and cruel police force. Wherein there word is law and if you contradict them, they can put you away. Anyway, back to Christine’s missing son, after 5 months of so called investigation, the police found his son and reunited them in front of the media. However, Christine insisted that the boy was not his son. She presented several facts about his son such as the boy is shorter than 3 inches and uncircumcised, but the doctor which the police brought to interview the boy said otherwise. When a reverend who has a radio show talked her into telling her story to the press, the police got wind of it and they hauled her to a mental institute and brand her as delusional.
