Changeling tells the harrowing true story of single mum Christine Collins (Angelina Jolie) whose son Walter (Gattlin Griffith) was kidnapped from her LA home.

Months later the LA Police Department find a boy. When Collins rejects the child she is imprisoned in a mental institution by the under-fire LAPD, who are desperate for a positive conclusion, until it becomes apparent that Walter's fate may be entangled with that of numerous other missing children. Changeling is a film of transformations: the transformation of one boy into another, the transformation of Angelina Jolie in to a credible actress and the transformation of the film itself from missing person mystery to film noir to serial killer flick. Eastwood again displays his consummate ability to create compelling viewing.
