The Changeling a Hit at Cannes

Clint Eastwood's latest film, The Changeling is getting good notices at Cannes, which prompts buzz that finally Eastwood may get a top award this year after taking five other films to Cannes before. Also there is talk that the title may be getting changed to "The Exchange."

Todd McCarthy of Variety states,

"A thematic companion piece to Mystic River but more complex and far-reaching, The Changeling impressively continues Clint Eastwood's great run of ambitious late-career pictures. Emotionally powerful and stylistically sure-handed, this true story-inspired drama begins small with the disappearance of a young boy, only to gradually fan out to become a comprehensive critique of the entire power structure of Los Angeles, circa 1928. Graced by a top-notch performance from Angelina Jolie the Univesal looks poised to do some serious business upon tentatively scheduled opening late in the year."

Cinematical says:

"Clint Eastwood's The Changeling (which may or may not be now known as The Exchange), is a riveting drama about a missing boy and the undying constancy of a mother's love. Angelina Jolie excels in a powerful performance as Christine Collins, whose nine-year-old son, Walter, disappeared in 1928. Five months later, police returned to her a boy they said was Walter; Christine alleged that the boy was not her son."

And also from Time.

Will all the good notice take note next Feburary at the Kodak Theater.
