The wicked witch who has haunted generations of children in Sleeping Beauty has been brought grippingly to life by Angelina Jolie, in a modern retelling seeking to humanize the fairytale she-devil."Maleficent," released on Friday in the United States, amounts to a towering tribute to Jolie, who produces and stars in the film about the Disney witch with unlimited powers. With a haughty bearing, curved horns and razor-sharp cheekbones, the 38-year-old actress embodies in all its glory the character drawn by legendary animator Marc Davis in the original 1959 classic.Robert Stromberg, directing for the first time after winning two Oscars in art direction -- for "Avatar" and "Alice in Wonderland" -- agrees it would have been boring to make a film simply about a wicked witch.Thus for example the scene where Princess Aurora is cursed to eternal sleep when she is christened follows astonishingly closely the equivalent scene from the 1959 animated film.
