In Changeling another mother desperately seeks information about her missing son, even though a boy claiming to be her child has been returned to her. Stanley Tucci has a long resume of movie characters, including many who are far less ominous than George Harvey. He plays the husband of chef Julia Child in Julie & Julia, a political campaign manager in Swing Vote and a power hungry airport director in The Terminal.

The Lovely Bones is based on the novel by Alice Sebold.
