Changeling (체인질링)

Inspired by actual events that occurred in 1920s-era Los Angeles, Clint Eastwood's "Changeling" tells the story of a woman driven to confront a corrupted LAPD after her abducted son is retrieved and she begins to suspect that the boy returned to her is not the same boy she gave birth to. The year was 1928, and the setting a working-class suburb of Los Angeles. As Christine (Angelina Jolie) said goodbye to her son, Walter, and departed for work, she never anticipated that this was the day her life would be forever changed. Upon returning home, Christine was distressed to discover that Walter was nowhere to be found. Over the course of the following months, the desperate mother would launch a search that would ultimately prove fruitless. Yet just when it seemed that all hope was lost, a nine-year-old boy claiming to be Christine's son seemed to appear out of thin air. Overcome with emotions and uncertain how to face the authorities or the press, Christine invites the child to stay in her home despite knowing without a doubt that he is not her son. As much as Christine would like to accept the fact that her son has been returned to her, she cannot accept the injustice being pushed upon her and continues to challenge the Prohibition-era Los Angeles police force at every turn. As a result, Christine is slandered by the powers that be, and painted as an unfit mother. In this town, a woman who challenges the system is putting her life on the line, and as the situation grows desperate, the only person willing to aid her in her search is benevolent local activist Reverend Briegleb (John Malkovich).

About the Movie

Changeling is a 2008 American period thriller directed by Clint Eastwood and written by J. Michael Straczynski. The film begins in 1928 Los Angeles and tells the true story of a woman who recognizes that the boy returned after her son's disappearance is an impostor. After confronting the city authorities, she is vilified as an unfit mother and branded delusional. The events were related to the Wineville Chicken Coop Murders, a kidnapping and murder case that was uncovered in 1928. Changeling explores themes such as disempowerment of women and corruption in political hierarchies. The film was made by Imagine Entertainment and Malpaso Productions for Universal Pictures.

Straczynski was told of the case by a contact at Los Angeles City Hall. He spent a year researching it through archived city records before writing the script, most of which was taken from the historical record. The shooting script was not changed from Straczynski's first draft and was his first produced film screenplay. Principal photography began on October 15, 2007 and was completed in November 2007. Filming took place in Los Angeles and throughout Southern California. Visual effects were used to supplement shots with skylines, backdrops and digital extras. Eastwood's noted economical directing style extended to Changeling's shoot; actors and members of the crew remarked upon the calmness of the set and the short working days.

Angelina Jolie was cast in the lead partly because Eastwood felt her face fit the period setting. Several actors had campaigned for the part. Jeffrey Donovan, John Malkovich, Jason Butler Harner, Amy Ryan, Michael Kelly, Colm Feore and Peter Gerety are also featured. Most of the characters were based on their real life counterparts, while some were composites. Changeling premiered at the 61st Cannes Film Festival on May 20, 2008, where it was met with critical acclaim. It had its North American premiere on October 4, 2008 at the 46th New York Film Festival, and was released wide in North American theaters on October 31, 2008 after a limited release that began on October 24, 2008. It was released in the United Kingdom on November 26, 2008, and will open in Australia on February 5, 2009. Changeling's wide release was met with a more mixed response than at Cannes. The acting and story were largely praised, with criticism focusing on its conventional presentation and lack of nuance.

아들을 되찾기 위해 세상과 맞선 그녀!
2009년 1월, 눈물로 쓴 감동의 실화가 찾아온다.

1928년 LA.
9살난 아들 월터와 단둘이 사는 싱글맘 크리스틴 콜린스(안젤리나 졸리)는 오랜만의 아들과의 외출로 들떠 있지만, 갑작스러운 호출로 출근하게 된다. 회사에서 돌아온 그녀는 상상도 못했던 끔찍한 악몽과 맞닥뜨리게 되는데, 아들의 모습이 흔적도 없이 사라져버린 것이다. 삶의 전부와도 같은 아들의 실종에 다급하게 경찰을 찾지만, 이런 사건은 실종 된지 24시간이 지나야 수사가 가능하다며, 아침이 되면 아들이 돌아올 거라는 황당한 답변만이 돌아온다. 그 시간 경찰은, 연일 라디오 프로그램에서 경찰들의 부패와 무능력을 신랄하게 비판하는 브리그랩 목사의 방송에 촉각을 곤두세우고 있었다.

뒤바뀐 아이.. 뒤바뀐 운명...
모든 것을 제자리로 되돌리기 위해 오늘보다 내일 더 강해져야만 한다!!

매일을 아들 찾기에 매달려 힘든 시간을 보내던 크리스틴. 다섯 달 후, 아들을 찾았다는 경찰의 연락을 받는다. 수십 명의 기자들까지 동반하고 나타난 경찰과 그 곁에 서있는 아이. 그토록 기다리던 그녀의 아들은 어디에도 없었다. ‘내 아들이 아니예요’라며 고개를 가로젓는 그녀에게 경찰은 아이들은 빨리 변한다고.. 다섯 달 동안 당신 아들도 변한 것이라며 강제로 그녀에게 아이를 떠맡긴다. 크리스틴은 경찰의 위압적인 태도에 어쩔 수 없이 기자들에게 모자상봉의 사진을 찍히고, 아이를 집으로 데려온다.
하지만, 엄마가 자기 아들을 못 알아 볼 리는 없을 터. 제발 더 늦기 전에 자신의 진짜 아들을 찾아달라고 경찰에 재수사를 간청하지만, 이번 사건으로 시민들의 환심을 사기에 급급한 경찰은, 그녀를 철저히 무시하며 서둘러 사건을 종결하려 한다.
이 사실을 알게 된 브리그랩 목사의 도움을 받아 기자들에게 사실을 알리려는 크리스틴. 자신들의 실수가 밝혀질까 두려운 경찰은 그녀를 양육을 회피하려는 히스테리 환자로 몰아 정신병원에 감금해버린다.
크리스틴은 과연 아들을 찾을 수 있을까?
아들을 찾기 위한 엄마의 눈물어린 용기의 싸움이 시작된다.
