Top 100: #99 Changeling (2008)

Even though I don't like Angelina Jolie, I liked Changeling. Or rather, I was quite disturbed by it, and found it hard to watch in one sitting. But yet, the movie has stayed with me, and haunted me. Christine Collins (Jolie) goes through every mother's worst nightmare-losing a child. When the police give her a child they believe to be her son, she is adamant that the boy is of no relation to her, but she can't get her message across to the police. Clint Eastwood delivers a powerful, yet thought povoking film which has a surprise performance from Jolie.

"I used to tell Walter, 'Never start a fight... but always finish it.' I didn't start this fight... but by God, I'm going to finish it."- Christine Collins

You mustn't be afraid to dream a little bigger, darling.
