Check This Out: Sultry Poster for Cannes Selected 'Sleeping Beauty'

April 29, 2011

Sleeping Beauty

We've already seen quite a beautiful and even eerie trailer for Sleeping Beauty, the directorial debut of author Julia Leigh, and next month our own Alex Billington should be seeing the film as part of the 64th Cannes Film Festival. Now we have a look at a simple, but sultry poster for the film starring Emily Browning as a high end prostitute. Though there's no real nudity in the poster (which The Playlist discovered at Recent Movie Posters), it's a bit provocative of a snapshot showing some skin so be careful where you're viewing it. The trailer has me intrigued so I can't wait to hear the buzz in Cannes next month.

Here's the poster for Sleeping Beauty (click for a larger version):

Sleeping Beauty Poster

A haunting erotic fairytale about Lucy (Emily Browning), a University student drawn into a mysterious hidden world of beauty and desire with prostitution, where her specialty is the 'Sleeping Beauty chamber.'

Sleeping Beauty 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 is being presented by legendary Oscar winning director Jane Campion. The film was just slated for a Cannes Film Festival 2011 premiere, so there's plenty more to come as the festival gets underway in May. Stay tuned for updates from The Croisette.

    organized prostitution...THE MOVIE!!!!!!
  • Gorgeous poster! I want one!
  • I wonder if it's based on Yasunari Kawabata's novella "House of the Sleeping Beauties". If so it's not entirely accurate to call the character a prostitute. Or maybe the filmmakers were inspired by the work and took it another direction than the book.
