The film does a wonderful job of re-telling the story from Maleficent’s point of view. Angelina Jolie plays the villain role perfectly. The movie is suspenseful and keeps the audience on their toes. Maleficent is rated PG and family friendly. It does have a few intense scenes to consider for the youngest family members. Overall, it’s a film our family enjoys watching again and again.
