97. Angelina Jolie as Mariane Pearl in "A Mighty Heart"
http://www.alternet.org/waroniraq/55312 /

It seems that accuracy is secondary to keeping actual people of color out of major/starring roles. It doesn't have to be deliberate, just overlooked or an "oops" moment. In this case, since Ms. and Mr. Angelina Jolie (that's no typo) are the forces behind the film, they can cast who they want, facts be damned. Having seen photos of Mariane Pearl and Angelina Jolie, there's no way that the real Mariane Pearl would be mistaken for white, and Angelina couldn't pass for black--or not-white.
