Angelina Jolie in Cannes "Changeling" Premiere

Angelina Jolie walked the red carpet with partner Brad Pitt at her new film "Changeling" in the Cannes Film Festival on the French Riviera yesterday. The film is set in Los Angeles in 1928 and tells how the woman's invincible spirit brought down a police department and ushered in a new era of equality.Directed by Clint Eastwood, the movie is based on the real-life story of working class single mother Christine Collins (Jolie), whose nine-year-old son Walter goes missing.

Five months later a child claiming to be the boy is returned and police are eager to bask in a public relations coup of reuniting mother and son. Christine takes the boy home, but knows in her heart he is not Walter.
During the launch press conference, Angelina Jolie said that she could not imagine anything worse than losing a child,"To lose a child, I can't imagine anything worse, especially not knowing the fate of that child."
Jolie added,"I lost my own mother a few months before the film... My mother was very passive in many ways and very sweet, but when it came to her children, she was a lion." She said Christine reminded her of her mother Marcheline Bertrand and it was a way of re-visiting her. Marcheline Bertrand died after a seven year battle with ovarian cancer in January 2007.
