Sleeping Beauty

Thrillingly original. By turns exquisite and down-to-earth.

— Karen Durbin, Elle

Gorgeous, opaque and disturbing in roughly equal portions... A riveting experience all the way through.

— Andrew O'Hehir, Salon

Jane Campion presents SLEEPING BEAUTY, the bold and provocative directorial debut of Julia Leigh, an official selection of the Cannes, Toronto and Chicago film festivals. Featuring a phenomenal breakthrough performance by Emily Browning, this coolly shocking retelling of the classic myth poses its heroine as a rarified sex-worker, confronting ideas of feminine sexuality with bravado and precision.
