This a film that has recently come out on DVD and I really liked it, Obviously it is a family kind of film with it being Disney, but it is great because it also has quite a good plot twist.
So in Sleeping beauty the film in which Melificent is the evil one, she places a curse upon Aurora so that on her 16th birthday she will prick her finger on a spindle of a spinning wheel and die, then the fairy changes the cure so that she only falls asleep and she wakes when kissed by her true love.
But In this film you see the story from Melificents perspective, she places the curse upon the child because she was betrayed by someone she loved, he cut off her wings to become king.
Over the years she watched the child grow and the child believes that she is her fairy god mother, in the end Melificent grows to love Aurora and tries to undo the curse, but it couldn't be undone.
So Aurora pricks her finger and falls into her sleep, so Melificent finds the boy who Aurora met in the woods, unlike sleeping beauty Aurora doesn't awake from his kiss but from a kiss on the fore head from Melificent.
What I like about this is that it has a dark feel behind it kind of like Tim Burton's films, but this was directed by Robert stomberg, he directed other films such as the pirates of the Caribbean , The hunger games and the golden compass which are all amazing films. I really like the modern twist and the different perspective that this film gives. It's one of those that make you want to watch more.
