A beautiful, pure-hearted young woman, Maleficent has an idyllic life growing up in a peaceable forest kingdom, until one day when an invading army threatens the harmony of the land. Maleficent rises to be the land’s fiercest protector, but she ultimately suffers a ruthless betrayal – an act that begins to turn her heart into stone. Bent on revenge, Maleficent faces an epic battle with the invading King’s successor and, as a result, places a curse upon his newborn infant Aurora. As the child grows, Maleficent realizes that Aurora holds the key to peace in the kingdom – and to Maleficent’s true happiness as well.

Plenty of the retelling is visually magnificent, with amazing special effects and lush scenery: The moors in their brightest are enchanting and sweet, while the kingdom is a drab and imposing place. Between the artwork style, the costumes, and the pristine CGI-aided make-up (has an actress ever had such brassy cheekbones as Jolie in this film?), Maleficent is a real feast for the eyes, which is no surprise, given manager Robert Stromberg’s history as a visual effects expert.

Plot-wise, the film is a small letdown. Jolie is fantastic at being (justifiably) mean with her sharp face, frightening green eyes, and also clipped speaking tones — and she is good at delivering the dry one-liners. However, to reduce her story to the cliche of a jilted and jealous ex-girlfriend is slightly disappointing and undercuts the movie’s other message: that you need to strive to remain in the mild, even when surrounded by darkness. While younger kids may be alternately scared or tired, older kids and grownups might wish for a little more enchantment to go along with the effects. Still, Fanning, so lovely and bright-eyed, is well cast as teen Aurora, and worth visiting opposite Jolie.
