Clint Eastwood directs Angelina Jolie and John Malkovich in a provocative drama based on actual events: "Changeling".
In the film Christine Collins' (Jolie) prayers are met when her kidnapped son is returned. But amidst the frenzy of the
photo-op reunion, she realizes this child is not hers. Facing corrupt police and a skeptical public, she desperately hunts
for answers, only to be confronted by the truth that will change her forever. Lost Angeles, 1928: On a Saturday morning
in a working class suburb, Christine said goodbye to her son Walter, and left for work. When she came home, she discovered
he had vanished. A fruitless search ensues, and months later, a boy claiming to be the nine year old is returned. Dazed
by the swirl of cops, reporters and her conflicted emotions, Christine allows him to stay overnight. But in her heart, she
knows he is not Walter. As she pushes authorities to keep looking, she learns that in Prohibition-era L.A., women don't
challenge the system and live to tell their story. Slandered as delusional and unfit, Christine finds an ally in activist
Reverend Briegleb (Malkovich), who helps her fight the city to look for her missing boy. Based on the actual incident that
rocked California's legal system, "Changeling" tells the shocking tale of a mother's quest to find her son, and those
who won't stop until they silence her.
