Sleeping Beauty

Preview by Jack Foley

“YOU will go to sleep: you will wake up. It will be as if those hours never existed. You won’t even dream. For an hour or two after you wake you will feel – yes, slightly groggy and then – fine. Perfectly fine. Not nearly as bad as a hangover. Such a sleep works wonders. You will feel-profoundly restored.”

REVOLVER Entertainment and Oscar-nominee Jane Campion (The Piano, Bright Star) present Julia Leigh’s Sleeping Beauty, a haunting portrait of young university student, Lucy, drawn into a mysterious hidden world of beauty and desire.

The film is available on DVD and Blu-Ray from February 27, 2012.

An Official Selection of 2011 Cannes Film Festival, contemporary novelist and first time director Leigh, blew audiences away with this original and mesmeric tale, witnessing Emily Browning (Sucker Punch, The Uninvited) in a breathtaking performance described by Campion as “flawless” and “career breaking” by Time Out.

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.

Sleeping Beauty is rated 18 for graphic sexual content and has a running time of 101 minutes.
