Maleficent


Disney’s classic movie, Sleeping Beauty, came out in 1959 and was the tale of Auora, a princess who had a curse put on her by the evil Maleficent.  The new Disney film, Maleficent, is the view point of Maleficent who is so richly played by Angelina Jolie. In the story, we know that she casts a curse on Auora and at the age of 16 she would prick her finger on a spinning wheel and die.  But did you ever wonder why Maleficent cursed Auora and why she was evil?  This tale was fun to watch and it captured my interest from the very beginning. I really enjoyed how the writers took a cartoon character and made her into a person with emotions while still telling the story of Sleeping Beauty. It was dark at times but through it all there was a charming element beneath the surface of the character.  I really liked the movie!  (Just a personal note, this movie is geared for maybe older kids due to some of the intense scenes but then again, the dragon in the original movie scared me!)
