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'
when a man violates a woman, he cuts off her wings.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier + deleted scene
HE KNOWS. HE KNOWS THERE ARE HYDRA AGENTS IN THE ROOM AND HE’S TELLING HER TO GO TO NEW YORK SO THEY THINK SHE’S GONE.
And Hill knows what’s up. I’m not sure how much time they spent working together but it seems to me they both know what needs to happen next, and Sitwell knows staying behind is likely to get him killed.
That last gif. That microexpression softening. She knows it’s likely to get him killed as well, and that’s a damn shame but it has to happen.
"Shits fucked. Go find Cap, here’s your out. They’ll think your goody two shoes ass is gone."
"Yeah. Good luck."
"Heh. I have to run my best patsy ever or I’m done for."
"You’ll… I’ll see you on the other side of this."
