This scene is SO important. Maleficent is with someone she trusts, someone she considers a friend. And then the next thing she knows, she wakes up in pain, bleeding, with her wings burned off. A huge part of her has been destroyed.

Rape is so prominent in our culture that it is in a Disney movie. Maybe not explicitly, but it is very clear what this scene represents and it is so sad.

I fucking cried my eyes out during this scene

AJ even confirmed that this is what this scene was a metaphor for (x) - just because i saw someone say today that this is not what this scene is about

'We were very conscious that it was a metaphor for rape': The actress explained how the scene in which her character has her wings ripped off her body while in a drug-induced sleep had to be something 'so violent and aggressive' that it would make her 'lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood and her softness' 

Listen, Maleficent was a shitty movie. There was so much build-up for a plot twist that had so much potential and they fucking let me down.

But this scene was undeniably painful, and I shudder to think what kind of mental and emotional process Angelina Jolie put herself through to do that properly, accurately. This scene plunged its hand into my chest and squeezed my heart, taking its time tearing me apart.

And I looked around me, and all the girls were crying, and all the boys were confused. So.
