Movie Screening of "Changeling"  試写会“チェンジリング”

Just went to the movie screening of changeling last night, it released in theatre everywhere from today.

“Changeling is a being in West European folklore and folk religion, typically described as the offspring of a fairy, troll, elf or other legendary creature that has been secretly left in the place of a human child.” ~ by WIKIPEDIA~

My impression of this movie was kinda shocking. The old prohibition-era in LA, 1928, women sacrificed a lot… Old era LAPD…they hid and erased all the suspicious dirty records and also they’re such a lazy ass!!! What they’ve done to women was soooo….brutal……Women were not allowed to challenge the system and couldn’t tell their true story… It made me feel that how women difficult to live in the era…oh boy, I’m so lucky that I was not living in the era…
Overall, I liked this movie a lot, in spite of the fact that it was 141min movie, I didn’t get bored at all(yea, some movies makes me sleep tho…heehe). Clint Eastwood directs this movie nicely done. Angelina Jolie and John Malkovich both were great in it too. If you want to know the truth what happened in 1928 in LA, better see this.

Btw, Happy Halloween to everyone!

Brief Synopsis
Los Angeles, 1928: On a Saturday morning in a working-class suburb, Christine said goodbye to her son, Walter, and left for work. When she came home, she discovered he had vanished. A months later, a boy claiming to be the nine-year-old is returned. Dazed by the swirl of cops, reporters and her conflicted emotions, Christine allows him to stay overnight. But in her heart, she knows he is not Walter…


「チェンジリングとは、日本語では『取替え子』と言う意味で、ヨーロッパの伝承で、フェアリー・エルフ・トロールなど伝承の生物の子と、人間の子供が秘密裡に取り替えられること、またその取り替えられた子のことをいうらしいです。」(by うぃき)
