Three Movie I Recently Watched

1. It's All About the Women

Starring: Meg Ryan, Annette Bening, Eva Mendes, Debra Missing, Jada Pinkett Smith, Candice Bergen

"Mary Haines (Meg Ryan), a thoroughly modern woman suddenly confronted with an age-old dilemma: a cheating husband. The ladies in her life swiftly rally to Mary's side, led by her best friend, Sylvie Fowler (Annette Bening), a dynamic magazine editor. But when Sylvie betrays Mary in a Fuastian bargain, the entire group is shaken to the core - and two women face the most painful breakfup of all - their friendship."

2. Gran Torino

Starring: Clint Eastwood

"Disgruntled Korean War vet Walt Kowlaski sets out to reform his neighbor, a young Hmong teenager, who tried to steal Kowalsk's prized possession: his 1972 Gran Torino."

3. Changeling

Starring: Angelina Jolie, JohnMalkovich

"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 know 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 (Malcovich), who helps her fight the city to look for her missing boy. "
