Sleeping Beauty DVD Review



Synopsis: Jane Campion presents Sleeping Beauty, a fascinating depiction of a young woman's reckless decent into a shocking world of erotic desires. Lucy (Emily Browning in a breakthrough performance) is a young university student possessed by a kind of radical passivity, letting coin tosses decide random sexual encounters and enduring her menial jobs with an uncomplaining patience. After answering an ad in the student newspaper for a lingerie waitress, Lucy is secretly initiated into the job of a Sleeping Beauty, for which she is sedated and given in absolute submission to her clients. As this unnerving experience begins to bleed into her daily life, Lucy develops the courage to break the spell and discover what happens to her while she sleeps. First-time director Julia Leigh creates a bold cinematic vision with her shocking retelling of the classic myth that poses its heroine as a rarified sex-worker confronting ideas of feminine sexuality with bravado and precision.

Review: This movie is a phenominal arthouse feature that has Emily Browning (Sucker Punch) playing a detached girl working in the sexual trade.  She isn't a hooker, but rather an erotic model of sorts that gets into a bizarre fetish world of sleeping nude for money..again with no sex allowed.   This film contains a lot of nudity, drawn out scenes and fantastic dialogue.  If you watch indie film, these things won't come as a surprise to you, but the average movie viewer may be taken aback.  We highly HIGHLY recommend watching this one.  Its moving and fascinating.
