How did you sleep last night? Guess ok, if you’re reading us now, and we’re happy to hear that, because you’re going to enjoy in the latest posters and images from Julia Leigh‘s upcoming Sleeping Beauty, project that we already wrote about, and that will play In Competition at this year’s Cannes Film Festival. So check it out.
Provocative? Sensual? Whatever, as long as Emily Browning is on these posters!
As we already reported, the movie is both written and directed by first-time Australian filmmaker Julia Leigh, who is a novelist making her major leap into cinema with this film.
Sleeping Beauty stars Emily Browning, Michael Dorman, Mirrah Foulkes, Rachael Blake, Hugh Keays-Byrne, Joel Tobeck, Tammy McIntosh and Henry Nixon.
The cinematography is by Geoffrey Simpson (The Navigator: A Medieval Odyssey, The Last Days of Chez Nous, Shine) and experimental musician Ben Frost (the man behind the ‘Theory of Machines’) was in charge for the music.

I’m sure you all remember the trailer for this one, but just in case you have no idea what we’re talking about, you can check it out here and read the synopsis part as well:
“You will go to sleep: you will wake up. It will be as if those hours never existed.” 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.”
