SPECIAL ENGAGEMENT: SLEEPING BEAUTY
SLEEPING BEAUTY
SLEEPING BEAUTY (2011)
2011, Sundance Selects, 104 min, Australia, Dir: Julia Leigh

Reckless college student Lucy (Emily Browning in an arresting performance, somnambulistic and quietly despairing) has a careening, precarious lifestyle, juggling various degrading day jobs while seating herself at a dimly lit bar in the after-hours, numbly agreeing to meaningless trysts with the patrons. When she accepts a high-paying position at a specialized brothel, headed by exacting madame Clara (Rachael Blake) and requiring its prostitutes to be drugged into slumber while impotent older men lie with them, the seemingly shock-absorbent Lucy reaches her breaking point. Julia Leigh’s remarkably visionary directorial debut is a hypnotically bleak, nightmarishly kinky portrait of a young woman on the verge of sobering self-discovery, at once recalling Stanley Kubrick’s EYES WIDE SHUT and Luis Bunuel’s BELLE DE JOUR.
