Cruel scene in 'Maleficent' is metaphor for rape: Jolie
Los Angeles: Angelina Jolie has compared a brutal scene in her latest movie 'Maleficent' to rape.
Addressing more than 300 government dignitaries at the London-hosted Global Summit to End Sexual Violence in Conflict, UN Special Envoy Jolie has been asked about the scene in the film, in which the titular character's wings are torn off her body by a childhood friend, reported Ace Showbiz.
"We were very conscious, the writer (Linda Woolverton) and I, that it was a metaphor for rape. This would be the thing that would make her lose sight. At a certain point, the question of the story is what could possibly bring her back?
"The core of [the film] is abuse, and how the abused have a choice of abusing others or overcoming and remaining loving, open people. The question was asked, 'What could make a woman become so dark? To lose all sense of her maternity, her womanhood, and her softness?,'" she said.
