Maleficent

From Disney comes "Maleficent"—the untold story of Disney’s most iconic villain from the 1959 classic "Sleeping Beauty." 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 an epic 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.

HitFix Reviews and Ratings

  • C+
    Walt Disney is pushing their new film 'Maleficent' for the same audience that has made their princess brand so powerful, but the movie is a muddled mess that grapples with some very adult ideas about sexual power and the destruction of women without ever really figuring out what it wants to say.
