BIG Home Video launches ‘Changeling’
Changeling is the real deal, as good as any film (Eastwood) has ever made,
and 10 times more electrifying than most. It grabs you by the throat and never
lets go. - NEW YORK OBSERVER
Emotionally powerful and stylistically sure-handed. – VARIETY
...it draws you in from the quiet beginning, and holds you all the way through
to its frightful and beautifully edited conclusion. - KURT LODER, MTV
Some directors start young and get tired. Eastwood is only gathering steam.

Mumbai, June 22 2009: BIG Home Video in association with Universal Pictures brings to you Changeling, a provocative thriller based on true events. Clint Eastwood (Million Dollar Baby, Unforgiven, Letters from Iwo Jima) directs Angelina Jolie (The Good Shepherd; A Mighty Heart; Girl, Interrupted) and John Malkovich (Dangerous Liaisons, Beowulf, Burn After Reading) in an emotional drama that forever transformed the city of Los Angeles.
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 fruitless search ensues, and 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.
As she pushes authorities to keep looking, she learns that in Prohibition-era L.A., women don’t challenge the system and live to tell their story. Slandered as delusional and unfit, Christine finds an ally in activist Reverend Briegleb (Malkovich), who helps her fight the city to look for her missing boy. Based on the actual incident that rocked California’s legal system, Changeling tells the shocking tale of a mother’s quest to find her son, and those who won’t stop until they silence her.
On the retail front, exclusive offers have also been planned for women shoppers.
The Home Video of Changeling is out in stores now; the Blu-ray is priced at Rs. 1,299, the DVD at Rs. 599 and the VCD at Rs. 299.
