Changeling is a 2008 film based on an old American crime story called the “Wineville Chicken Coop Murders,” directed by auteur director, Clint Eastwood. In the film, Angelina Jolie plays the main role of 1920s single mother, Christine Collins, who relentlessly pursues the search of her son, once he is discovered to be missing. Reinterpreting the true story, Eastwood takes the audience of the film on the search with Mrs. Collins, steering her to unfold the true corruption and abusive authority of the Los Angeles Police Department (Bovsun). Many themes of this film revolve around ideas of social injustice. However, the overall triumph exists in the main plot which follows Christine Collins as she persistently demands justice in the ongoing search for her son, Walter Collins, by the Los Angeles Police Department.

The investigation draws attention to the evidence of Ms. Silva going inside the house and grabbing a large kitchen knife then returning back to the middle of the road where Polkinghorne was on top of Miguel. She stabbed him five times in the shoulder and neck. After observing the evidence provided, Justice Hoeben made the judgment that although Jessica Silva intended to harm Mr. Polkinghorne, she only did it to protect herself and her family "The death was committed under extreme circumstances in the agony of the moment," Justice Hoeben said. He said the jury 's verdict indicated that they found her action "was not a reasonable response in the circumstances as she perceived them, thereby rendering her guilty of the crime of manslaughter by way of excessive self-defence". He said offenders convicted of manslaughter could only avoid jail "in the most exceptional case" and Silva 's case fell into that category.
By coincidence, Diana Bowden, who supplied jewellery to the souvenir shop, owned the Nautilus Restaurant in Port Douglas with her husband Max. Their previous lessees departed in 1968 and to keep it running Diana served Devonshire Teas in the garden, favouring her jewellery business over the idea of working as a full time restaurateur. Taking over the lease, George and Colin transformed the Nautilus, creating a fine dining destination, famed for good food and good service in a lush tropical garden setting, attracting locals, visitors from Cairns, and Australian and international VIPs. The following year George and Colin also took over the lease of the restaurant at the Reef House Palm Cove, owned by Judy and David Thomson, former army Brigadier, and later National Country Party Member for Leichhardt. In 1972 the couple relocated back to Cairns and opened the fine dining Georges’ Bistro in the converted Palace Theatre on Lake Street.
