maleficentMaleficent is the story of Sleeping Beauty with a twist! Instead of the typical villain we are familiar with, Maleficent was born as a goodhearted fairy. Her troubles began when she fell in love with a human boy who eventually betrayed her. This is what propels Maleficent to curse Sleeping Beauty. This film is visually stunning and really interesting for those who enjoy retellings of classic stories.
