“Changeling” Heads for Cannes

Variety has announced that Changeling will be shown at the Cannes Film Festival this month.  The film was written by J. Michael Straczynski, directed by Clint Eastwood, and stars Angelina Jolie

Changeling is a mystery about a mother whose prayer for her kidnapped son to return home is answered.  It doesn’t take long, however, for her to suspect that the boy who comes back is not hers.

So why am I blogging about this film?  Because our own Mike McCafferty has a small role in it!  He plays the role of a ticket agent.  I’m really hoping that he won’t be cut from this film and that we’ll actually be able to see him this time. 

The Cannes Film Festival runs from May 14 – 25, and Changeling is premiering on Tuesday, May 20.  Hopefully some of you French fans will be able to attend and see this film.  If not, Changeling is scheduled to get a wide release in France on February 4, 2009.  In the U.S., Changeling will be released on November 7, 2008.  See the schedule below for the release dates for a few more countries:
