MALEFICENT

I’m not an Angelina Jolie fan but I loved this retelling (obviously inspired by Wicked) of Sleeping Beauty from the evil fairy’s side.  The visuals are sumptuous but the script is what makes it work: so many layers of conflict, all meticulously laid out and resolved.  Most screenwriters (hell, most novelists) could take a lesson from this film.  Trust me and see it.  You won’t regret it.
