Julia Leigh's psychosexual drama Sleeping Beauty gets a stark new trailer and poster

10.13.2011

First-time director Julia Leigh's SLEEPING BEAUTY starring Emily Browning looks all kinds of bizarre, somewhat unnerving, and completely engrossing. Leigh was nominated for the Palm d'Or at Cannes for her efforts here, and it appears that praise is warranted judging from the film's newly released trailer below.

SLEEPING BEAUTY - starring Browning, Rachael Blake, Ewan Leslie, Peter Carroll, and Chris Haywood - opens in limited release December 2nd.

Synopsis: Lucy is a young university student possessed by a kind of radical passivity. She lets a flip of a coin decide the outcome of a random sexual encounter and she displays an uncomplaining patience when facing the repetitions of her various menial jobs that fund her studies. One day she answers an ad in the student newspaper and interviews for a job to be a lingerie waitress. But she is secretly being initiated into a world of strange new work; one where she will have to give into absolute submission to her clients by being sedated; becoming a Sleeping Beauty. Eventually this unnerving experience begins to bleed into her daily life and she finally develops the will to break the spell by discovering what happens to her while she sleeps. With a fearless performance by Browning, Leigh creates a bold cinematic vision; one where Lucy, both in her clandestine sexual adventures and in her mundane daily existence, lives with the same unflinching and brutal honesty.
