Sleeping Beauty trailer

“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.

Sleeping Beauty, an erotic fairytale directed by Julie Leigh, stars Emily Browning (Sucker Punch), Michael Dorman (Daybreakers), Mirrah Foulkes and Rachael Blake.

The Paramount/Transmission flick, produced by Magic Films, will be released on June 23.

It will have its world premiere at this year's Cannes International Film Festival, as reported by IF.

The trailer was made by The Solid State.
