Changeling – Did This Movie Live Up To The Hype-申威1600

UnCategorized Changeling is a movie that is based on a true story from the 1920s and it was directed by the legendary Clint Eastwood. It starred Angelina Jolie as a mother who loses her child and then has to fight a corrupt government system in a desperate attempt to get him back. So how good was this movie? Well there was a lot of hype surrounding this movie but I have to say that Changeling justified the hype. The story, although slightly depressing, was intriguing and keeps you hooked right through to the end. Changeling is essentially a story about deep government corruption. Jolie’s character .es home from her job one day only to find that her only child has been abducted. She is then assured that her child will be found. Several months later her son is indeed found safe and well. However as it turns out this isn’t the same child that went missing. This is backed up by a weight of evidence from the boy’s friends and his schoolteacher and dentist. However the government refuse to listen. This tragic tale then sees Jolie’s mental state being questioned, and in fact she is deemed to be insane and as a result institutionalized. Worst still the doctor in this institution turns out to just as corrupt as he sides with the police. This film does a terrific job of showing just how corrupt elements of the government and LAPD were at that particular time. This doesn’t sound like it has the makings of a truly great movie, but it is a really good story that keeps you gripped right through to the end. The acting is very good as well. Jolie delivers a superb performance and you really do feel sorry for her character. It is both heartbreaking and infuriating because it makes you feel angry at the level of corruption that is constantly working against her. I don’t think there’s been many great movies in recent years but Changeling was certainly a breath of fresh air. The story was different and original and yet it was authentic as well because it was based on a true story, Clint Eastwood is of course best known for his acting but this was an impressive performance as a director. He captured the atmosphere of the 1920s brilliantly. The story was a depressing one but it was brilliantly told and the fight for justice was fascinating to watch. So overall I would certainly re.mend you watch Changeling because it was a class above many of the films that been made in recent years. About the Author: 相关的主题文章:
