The story of Sleeping Beauty has had several versions, the latest of which is entitled Maleficent. The focus is moved from the princess to the fairy. Angelina Jolie is enchanting as Maleficent. Elle Fanning is effervescent as Aurora. There are a few details that are different from the story I remember, but they add dimension and make sense. The costumes and special effects are excellent. Nice job.
