Watch: Theatrical Trailer for 'Sleeping Beauty' Starring Emily Browning
"You'll feel profoundly restored…" IFC Films has debuted the US theatrical trailer for the "controversial" Australian drama Sleeping Beauty, directed by newcomer Julia Leigh, starring Emily Browning, of Sucker Punch and The Uninvited. Yes, this is that indie where Browning gets nude pretty much the whole time, and participates in some odd sex acts, which really aren't that bad. I saw the film at its Cannes Film Fest premiere and really did not like it, at all. It's all hype and no payoff, a bland artsy drama that doesn't provide much at all. Yahoo has a new trailer but it's mostly a rehash of the original with new quotes. Enjoy!

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 was 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 premiered at the Cannes Film Festival this summer, and is being released by IFC Films in limited theaters this fall beginning on December 2nd. Anyone interested?
