I went to see "A Mighty Heart"

I went to see the Angelina Jolie film "A Mighty Heart" yesterday. It's about the kidnapping (and subsequent murder) of Wall Street Journal journalist Daniel Pearl while he was on assignment in Afghanistan to report the war there (Jolie plays his wife Mariane).

The film was enjoyable, but spectacularly depressing. It's a story that people will know (if they are aware of the war), but it was well told all the same. The weirdest thing was Jolie (who was wearing colored contacts and had had her hair curled like Mariane Pearls). You could till it was Jolie but at the same time she wasn't immediately recognizable as Jolie (if that makes any sense). I'm not sure how she pulled it off.
