Movie Review: Maleficent - PG

Maleficent is a kind-hearted fairy who rises up to be protector of the moors, a peaceful and beautiful land, against the king's army and anyone who would threaten the moors.  Despite this role, she is still a trusting person, and, as a result, she suffers a devastating betrayal.  

After the betrayal, Meleficent struggles with her anger, and desire for vengeance, and the goodness and caring that are still within her; a similar struggle that we all might contend with at sometime in our lives.

Although somewhat a remake of Sleeping Beauty, it is also a story of revenge and forgiveness, and the awareness of right and wrong.  The story is captivating,  and continually entertaining The animation is outstanding and the special effects are amazing.

Appropriate for the whole family.

Definite movie of the year!
Don't miss it!
