Angelina Jolie might not have dropped 30 pounds, developed a debilitating disease, or lived in solitude in a horrifying future, but her performance in "A Mighty Heart" stands not only as one of the year's best performances but arguably as the bravest. Starring as Mariane Pearl--devoted wife to slaughtered Wall Street Journal correspondent Daniel and a distinguished journalist in her own right--Jolie juggles first the superficial hurdles of a French accent (flawless) and a prosthetic pregnant belly.
