"Changeling" - brilliantly powerful.

This movie was worth every single ringgit I paid for. It's been quite a while since I watched something as good as this - Changeling.

Disturbing. Thoughts provoking. Inspiring.

I shall not give away the spoilers but I recommend you to catch it. It's based on a true story (for those who think that based on true stories mean 100% accurate, please don't. It's a film, films aren't 100% accurate even though its based on real accounts).
Still, its brilliant - both Clint Eastwood and Angelina Jolie.

It's one of those films where you cannot, not think when you are watching and after you've watched. I think to a certain extend, I couldn't help but kept thinking about what's happening in the local political scenes when I was watching it. I'm a great believer in one person can make a difference in this world and usually it starts with an ordinary person with an extraordinary strength and passion.

I wikied Christine Collins, if you are interested to find out more. In the movie, all that was in her mind when she started was to fight for her son but she ended fighting for something more, justice.
