The Changeling - Movie Review

Clint Eastwood's Changeling is a good period piece that's also a cracking good suspense movie without any car chases and only a few shots fired from a gun. Based on a true story of the disappearance of a small boy during the late '20s in Los Angeles, Eastwood's portrait of the era never lags during its two plus hours. A little too slick in places - the placards of the protesters look a little too well constructed and, if I'm not mistaken, I think I saw some of the same ones in two, separate scenes. But that's a quibble. Eastwood gets fine performances from his actors and the look of the film appears spot on. Not his finest but good enough.
