  • Changeling

    What is it about the police force that many a time makes them seem worse than criminals? In Changeling, the Los Angeles Police Department is incompetent, corrupt, and ruthless.

    Why were we born and who are we living for: for ourselves, for our parents, or for other loved ones? Anna (Abigail Breslin) philosophizes in My Sister’s Keeper. She was born in vitro, a designer baby meant to be a spare-parts provider for her sickly elder sister. There is...
