"Sleeping Beauty" marks the directorial debut of Sydney novelist Julia Leigh and if the calibre of her endorsements or the strength of this trailer are any indication, you'll be hearing a whole lot more about this film as the year progresses.
Synopsis: 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.
