A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land's fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal - an act that begins to turn her pure heart to stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces a battle with the invading king's successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom - and perhaps to Maleficent's true happiness as well. Written by

The two kings in this story set in the Middle Ages, which ended in 1453, are often addressed as Majesty. The first monarch addressed as Majesty was Charles I, King of Spain, who was also Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire as Charles V, and who reigned in the 16th century. See more »
Went to the theater, expecting to experience the dark side of Angelina Jolie who played a vengeful fairy with lofty wings and left the theater feeling astonished by how beautifully the movie changed my perspective.
The remake of the classic Disney movie, "Sleeping Beauty" timely and soundly panned out by wonderfully depicting both beautiful and gloomy sides of fairy land of Maleficent that feuded with selfish humans. The Visual effects and acting were so magnificent that mysterious creatures and the cast were totally in sync. The plot naturally went along with coherent and succinct narrations that added an in-depth storytelling. Not to mention a good composition that captured significant moments without boredom.
There are a lot more to feel, enjoy, and learn from what I would call, "One of the most underrated movies of the year" based on how the score was given. Not a Disney movie fan? Doesn't like a female protagonist? I don't think it will matter because once you start watching, you will be mesmerized by the imposing world and the ambivalent emotion of Maleficent.
