A tale set in a land far away, where a princess awaits her true love’s kiss and a happily ever after that follows every time, here’s a story that probably runs along the same lines, but still manages to be different. Maleficent is her name, an amalgamation of magnificent and malevolent, perhaps. Angelina Jolie springs back to glory with her role as a kind fairy who is forced to turn into an evil witch, who shall only be appeased once she has sought her revenge. This film has no hero or a heroine, but a beautiful antagonist, who carries the film on her shoulders and horns with as much evil as the role would require. So much so, that a sudden change of heart may appall you to a certain extent. Sadism is the norm, possibly. When one revels in another’s misery.
