MAGNIFICIENT (2014) is a fascinating retelling of the classic fairy tale Sleeping Beauty. In the original story, the evil fairy, who was not invited for the infant princess christening, puts a cure on her that she will fall dead when she comes of age. Maleficent narrates the story from the point of the view of the evil fairy and portrays her sympathetically.

‘Maleficent’ means to cause harm by supernatural means, which is what Maleficent does to the princess named Aurora. But her bitterness stems from the fact that she had once loved Aurora’s father, Stefan. Unfortunately he betrays her to fulfill his own political ambition and marries a princess. When he becomes king, the spurned Maleficent turns up at the christening of Stefan’s daughter and curses her that she will fall into a deep sleep when she pricks her finger on a spinning wheel spindle on her 16th birthday. The only antidote is the kiss of true love.
As Aurora grows older, Maleficent softens towards her and this proves to be the turning point of the story. The latter half of the film is particularly riveting, with a battle sequence and a dramatic ending.

Directed by Robert Stormberg, the 1 ½ hour long film was a smash hit. Angelina Jolie, who plays the titular bad fairy, delivers an excellent performance.
The film has stunning visual effects and a great music score, the characters wear rich costumes and artistics make-up.





The sequel, Maleficent II, is likely to release in 2019
