I finally had the chance to see Maleficent which stars one of my favorite all time actress, Angelina Jolie. I love all of her movies as it defines the essence of real woman and her roles are very unorthodox. I can honestly say that Maleficent is not an exception, it’s worth every penny. While I was watching Maleficent, I remember the quote; “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned”. This movie is so based on this idiom. She felt betrayed and unloved by the human which she trusted and thought was different. I’m sure that there was a time that we felt the same rejection and betrayal from someone we trust. This is not a regular Disney Fairy Tale movie, it has a big twist which I love.
Angelina’s performance earned a two thumbs up in my book. The way she delivered her lines and facial expressions left me speechless but at the same time excited on what she’ll do next in the movie. She gives justice to this role and portrayed the emotional essence of woman. Even though she got betrayed and becomes so intensely mad, she never closes her heart to love (although she intense denies it), the very reason she was able to experience true love, let go of hatred and forgive herself.
To sum it all up, I had learned quite a few life changing lessons from the movie which includes:
– true love comes in any form (not only between a man and woman)
– give yourself time to heal, look for the good things around you
– learn to let go of hatred, forgive and love yourself
and the best of all is, there is always a reason why someone acts the certain way.
This movie is definitely worth buying the DVD version and add to my Angelina Jolie movie collection..
