Wow, Talk About A Film That Hooks You In!

Wow, is this an involving story. It hooks you in fast and really grabs hold. It's very good in that aspect because it really makes you care about what happens. The story involves a parent's worst nightmare, so I would expect moms and dads to be particularly horrified. The movie manipulates, no doubt being overdone here and there, but it's generally effective.

Angelina Jolie does a superb job of portraying a Los Angeles woman ("Christine Collins") in the late 1920s whose boy is kidnapped. Five months later, the "proud" police department brings her kid back, making it a good PR session. Unfortunately, it's not her kid and stupidly, although she's naturally upset about, she poses with the kid and takes him home. (Would that really happen?).

Then she begins her quest of finding her real "Walter." Further twists and turns make the story increasingly horrifying. In all, you won't be able to keep your eyes off the screen wondering if justice will ever prevail in the end and who exactly is involved in what. It's not particularly a fun ride - you'll have a frown on your face for quite some time - but it sure is interesting and an excellent two hour-plus of entertainment. By the end, you'll be emotionally exhausted.

Kudos to all the actors in here for riveting performances and to the production and design team for a great period piece. Where else can you feel you're back 75-80 years in time with the boxy cars and flapper hats than in movies?

Fantastic

This movie is very well directed. Clint Eastwood successfully narrates the story and depicts that era on the screen beautifully. Angelina Jolie looks beautiful and emotes superbly. She does justice to her role and her character looks from that era. The supporting cast is flawless and the casting is impeccable. A very well made film

A plea and a warning to parents - the movie scenario & the Franklin cover-up

I have to make a plug for Vidangel here: just saw this streamed on VidAngel since it was rater R but it's a harrowing story I knew I nevertheless as a parent had to see and the 1928 case has similar elements to an

Turns out, Gordon Northcott, the serial killer in the Wineville chicken murders, used some of the same tactics used by the pedophilia network today as chronicled in the Franklin cover-up case. According FBI agent Ted L. Gunderson, an adult survivor of satanist pedophilia in the Franklin Cover-up case named Paul Bonacci relayed to him that using a child to lure other children near playgrounds and other public areas to a kidnapper's car was one way his captors acquired children for abuse,torture, and murder. See Gunderson's YouTube video "Throw them in Jail for Life: Franklin Cover Up (1 of 3)", time index 1:54

Also, Northcott's tactic of enlisting this same boy to help him kill, mutilate and dispose of the bodies of his victims is similar to Paul Bonacci's story as relayed in chapter 10 of his defense attorney John DeCamp's book, "The Franklin Cover-up":

(The following is a graphic excerpt of survivor Paul Bonacci's account and is disturbing but nevertheless needs to be told as some of the perpetrators are still at large and this pedophile network is still active and includes dirty judges, adoption agency officials, and prominent government and business leaders, and law enforcement. This took place in an "area with big trees" about an hour's drive from Sacramento, California, in January of 1984. Again, be forewarned; you can't unread this teenage boy's account of abuse he gave to his lawyer but every parent needs to know about this:)

"There was a cage with a boy in it who was not wearing anything. Nicholas and I were given these tarzan things to put around us and stuff. They told me to f--- the boy and stuff. At first I said no and they held a gun to my (genitals) and said do it or else lose them or something like that...We were told to f--- him and stuff and beat on him. I didn't try to hurt him. We were told to put our d---s in his mouth and stuff and sit on the boys p---- and stuff and they filmed it. We did this stuff to the boy for about 30 minutes or an hour when a man came in and kicked us...He grabbed the boy and started f---ing him and stuff...The boy was bleeding from his rectum and the men tossed him and me and stuff and put the boy right next to me and grabbed a gun and blew the boys head off.

"The boys blood was all over me and I started yelling and crying. The men grabbed Nicholas and I and forced us to lie down. They put the boy on top of Nicholas who was crying and they were putting Nicholas hands on the boys *ss. They put the boy on top of me and did the same thing. They then forced me to f--- the dead boy..they put a gun to our heads to make us do it. His blood was all over us. They made us kiss the boys lips and to eat him out. Then they made me do something I don't want to even write so I won't.

"After that the men grabbed Nicholas and drug him off screaming they put me up against a tree and put a gun to my head but fired into the air. I heard another shot from somewhere. I then saw the man who killed the boy drag him like a toy. Everything including when the men put the boy in a trunk was filmed. They took me with them and we went up in a plane. I saw the bag the boy was in. We went over a very thick brush area with a clearing in it. Over the clearing they dropped the boy. One said the men with the hoods would take care of the body for them.

Ted Gunderson notes that Paul Bonacci saw some of the children in this pedophile ring auctioned off and shipped to D.C., New York and Paris for sex parties. See "Throw them in Jail for Life: Franklin Cover Up (2 of 3)" time index 5:39.
