Christine Collins (Angelina Jolie) stars as a single working mother in California whose son is kidnapped. A police investigation is conducted, resulting in the boy seemingly being found and returned to his mother. Much to Christine’s horror though, it’s not her son, even though the boy himself insists otherwise to the police. At first, she is dismissed by the cops as delusional, but when she continues to insist it’s a case of mistaken identity, a much wider conspiracy is revealed. This heart-rending tale of a miscarriage of justice is made all the more poignant because it is based on a true story – and kudos to Jolie, who plays very convincingly the role of a sorrowful, wronged mother.
