Story


Jane Campion presents "SLEEPING BEAUTY", the bold and provocative directorial debut of Julia Leigh, an official selection of the Cannes, Toronto and Chicago film festivals. Featuring a phenomenal breakthrough performance by Emily Browning, this coolly shocking retelling of the classic myth poses its heroine as a rarified sex-worker, confronting ideas of feminine sexuality with bravado and precision.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..title character could be read as a parody of today‚Äôs liberated young woman..”
by Kyle Smith [New York Post]
“..there's really nothing, shameful or otherwise, to see in this pretentious and empty fairy tale..”
by Kathleen Murphy [MSN Movies]
“..the film remains uninvolving, its glacial pacing further slowed by exceedingly sparing camera movement, resulting in a look that's neither sensual nor unsettling..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]
