After seeing the trailer, this poster was kind of expected. The poster star Emily Browning from behind, barely covered by bed sheets with a hollow look in her eyes.
Premiering at the Cannes Film Festival later this year, Sleeping Beauty follows Browning’s character as she’s offered the chance to completely redefine her image.
She is a prostitute at a brothel who takes sleeping pills, passes out, lets guys do whatever they want to her, and when she wakes up she has no idea that anything happened.
Directed by Julia Leigh and also featuring Rachael Blake, Michael Dorman and Mirrah Foulkes, it sure is a different interpretation of what we are used to.
