Sleeping Beauty

Its a startlingly poised, modern-day fairy tale, a strange marriage of Jane Campion and Lars Von Trier that titillates, terrifies and haunts in equal measure. Browning plays Lucy, a university student who takes up a job as a Sleeping Beauty. The work is very simple: she is driven to a rural mansion, sedated, stripped, and then given over to rich clients who can do (almost) anything they wish with her…. But Lucy is a strange fish; she has a dynamic passivity that leads her to sleep with overweight strangers on the toss of a coin. Her decision to risk her life with strangers seems to be driven as much by curiosity and philosophical stance as it is by money.
