In one scene of the preview for the Julia Leigh-directed film, Browning is seen teasing a man by flashing her thighs to him in a pub.
Screen Australia's "Sleeping Beauty" has been previewed in its first red band trailer. The preview features Emily Browning who is doing provocative things, including flashing her thighs to a man in a pub. She is also seen almost naked in the beginning of the video.
Coming from director Julia Leigh, this "Sleeping Beauty" offers a bit different story from the original fairy tale. The movie tells a story of a haunting erotic fairy tale about Browning's Lucy, a student who drifts into prostitution and finds her niche as a woman who sleeps, drugged, in a "Sleeping Beauty chamber" while men do to her what she can't remember the next morning.
In addition to Browning, Michael Dorman, Mirrah Foulkes, Rachael Blake, and Hugh Keays-Byrne take other roles for the drama film. Produced by Jessica Brentnall, the movie is expected to hit theaters across the nation later this year.
