Magnificent. Triumphant. Wholehearted. Opulent in both emotions, costumes and acting.
I had an opportunity to see Maleficent in the pre-screening last night. Oh, what an experience! Without spoiling too much for you, I’ll share some of the high points of the movie that appealed to me. Get your kids and family together for an amazing Movie Maleficent on May 30. Opens in all theatres!
Story telling is at its prime in Maleficent. Disney has done a fabulous job narrating through the whole movie. It is a subtlety that is barely noticed. At the end, I was a bit surprised who was behind the whole story telling.
Angelina Jolie has added the solidity to every scene, the Presence of the grandeur. She is the anchor and motivator of Good and Evil. She is easy to side with through every single moment of the movie. All because of her Presence as an Actress, a Mother, a Humanitarian.
Elle Fanning plays Aurora, a cursed child, who falls into steps of Sleeping Beauty. In a way, she reminds Maleficent of her own childhood and draws powerful connections between the two souls.
At the end, Aurora saves Maleficent’s heart. But what is more important, Aurora continues the tradition of Maleficent rule as a crowned Princess of Moors, that very place where the story began.
The magic of Disney invites us to live through the experiences on the screen, so we could better reflect our own lives and tribulations of our daily living. This is one of the most Epic movies done by Disney. I applaud them and the whole cast. BRAVO!
Here’s a gallery of pictures from the El Capitan premiere in Hollywood last night. The whole cast was there for pictures and mini interviews.
