Three sentence movie reviews: Maleficent
While I don’t think this is the best movie I’ve watched this year, it may be my favorite movie of the year. The retelling of Maleficent’s story is bold, in a way that few movies about women are. It also introduces the trauma story into the fairy telling narrative, which opens the door for children to be able to talk about pain in a way they haven’t before.
Where watched: The Academy Theater with Matt.
