Movie review- Changeling

Changeling is a movie that kept me literally on the edge of my seat, moment for moment the movie twists and turns but at no point seems unbelievable. with most "based on a true story" type movies there are large chunks of the actual story that are sacrificed in either early stages of productions or in moments where the editors make the critical choice to keep the timing and flow of the movie smooth, in changeling these details do not seem to be lost in the least bit, i actually took the time to research the actual events that the movie is based on and the movie stay true to the original story almost "to a T" the imagery in the movie is incredibly striking and very historically accurate, Angelina Jolie is absolutely incredible as the Christine Collins, the mother of a young boy who disappears one day leaving no trace of himself or his suspected abductor. After a five month long investigation the LAPD tells christine that they have found her son! and that he is arriving by train the next day. but when Christine meets the train and sees the boy that has arrived, he is not her son. this is just the first of the many gut wrenching twist and turns that the movie has to offer
