If you’re under 18 or at work you should probably click away. While this is a fairy tale, it isn’t your typical Disney fairy tale. No, this is much grimmer and darker and Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) is no more a Sleeping Beauty than she is a high-end prostitute. Directed by Julia Leigh, “Sleeping Beauty” will premiere at the 64th Cannes Film Festival.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Death-haunted, quietly reckless, Lucy is a young university student who takes a job as a Sleeping Beauty. In the Sleeping Beauty Chamber old men seek an erotic experience that requires Lucy’s absolute submission. This unsettling task starts to bleed into Lucy’s daily life and she develops an increasing need to know what happens to her when she is asleep.
Trailer is NSFW due to some brief nudity.
