maleficent Checked out Maleficent, though framed as a children's film, the narrative is a must understand for adults:

  • When a person is violated and their trust shattered by a person they once consider dearest to them, there are multiple paths one can take.
  • When wealth and success are pursued at any cost, the cost could include the ability to enjoy the fruit of your labors.
  • Love, not just romantic love, but platonic love and friendship can shed a light on the darkest of pasts.

The themes of heartbreak, brokenness, vengeance, love and forgiveness were well portrayed in the film. Some of the violence  and character experiences might have been a bit much for the kiddies but it made great fodder for adult viewing. Overall it was a really good film with great acting and superb cinematography.
