Sleeping Beauty

Opens Friday, Oct 28, 2011 Synopsis: Critically lauded Australian author Julia Leigh makes the leap to feature films as the writer/director of this haunting and erotic take on the Sleeping Beauty legend. Beautiful college student Lucy (Emily Browning) has just begun dabbling in sex work when she accepts an interview with Clara (Rachel Blake), the proprietor of an elegant prostitution business which caters to a wealthy clientele. Accepting the opportunity with the understanding that the job is to be handled with the utmost discretion, Clara's job is to consume a sleeping potion that will render her completely unconscious, at which time the clients are permitted to enter her chamber and indulge their prurient desires. Though actual penetration is strictly forbidden, anything else is fair game. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi Cast: Emily Browning, Rachael Blake, Ewen Leslie, Peter Carroll Movie Details Play Trailer Buy Tickets Movie Review
