and Jolie's "top-notch" performance.

performance here hits home more directly," People quoted reviewer
Todd McCarthy. The Los Angeles Times has dubbed Eastwood's
direction "flawless" and the response to the movie "rapturous."
"Based on this powerful and searing performance, it would be a
good bet she will again be in the hunt for the Best Actress
nomination that eluded her for A Mighty Heart last year," wrote
reviewer Pete Hammond referring to Jolie.
77-year-old Eastwood said that Angelina is an amazing actress
"Angelina is fantastic in Changeling," People quoted Eastwood as
saying. When asked about the Oscar predictions he said, "I don't

Talking about film's sensitive subject matter of a missing
child, Eastwood said: "It was fun making it, but I am a little
nervous for parents going to see it." Meanwhile, Hollywood's
hottest couple Pitt and Jolie are now enjoying family time, and
