My girls are on a Sleeping Beauty kick. They watch the movie, both have Sleeping Beauty dolls, dress up like Sleeping Beauty. . .They like her a lot.
There is a part of the movie, though, that bothers me. After Aurora/Briar Rose/ Sleeping Beauty (so confusing for my girls!) is threatened by the evil Maleficient, the king demands that all spindles are destroyed.
Doesn't he realize this would ruin the economy? After the great bonfire the cost of clothes must have skyrocketed. And the poor producers of cotton and wool? They must have had goods just rot because no one could do anything with them.
It's all rather disturbing.
