Telling the other side of the story is something familiar to romance readers (hi, Lothaire, Styxx, and Sebastian, Lord St. Vincent!). Maleficent, starring Angelina Jolie, does the same, although it's not clear if she will end up redeemed at the end. Here's the synopsis:
The “Sleeping Beauty” tale is told from the perspective of the villainous Maleficent and looks at the events that hardened her heart and drove her to curse young Princess Aurora.
Maleficent will be in theaters March 2014. Are you intrigued?
