Fanning stars in this fantasy film directed by Robert Stromberg and based on the story of Sleeping Beauty. She takes on the role of Princess Aurora, who is cursed into a death-like sleep by Maleficent, who is played by Angelina Jolie. Her co-stars include Sharlto Copley, Kenneth Cranham, and Sam Riley.
I’m glad that our film is like that. Also, the way it ends up, it’s more of a maternal love and a friendship love that wins out, over a romantic love with a guy. That was a nice take on it.
