Maleficent

MaleficentAngelina Jolie was magnificent as Maleficent in the retelling of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty, which itself was a retelling of the fairy tale by the Grimm Brothers and a short story by Charles Perrault. The screen play was masterly written by Linda Woolverton. The movie was directed by Robert Stromberg. Angelina’s beauty was breathtaking and her acting was first rate. She is truly a movie star of the first magnitude. The cinematography was stunning. I saw it in digital but it begs to be seen in 3-D. I will have to go back to see it as it was meant to be seen. I saw some parallels to Angelina’s own life but I won’t say anything further here for fear of spoiling the fun. I give it a 10 out of 10. Maleficent has moved into the best film I’ve seen this year category.
