You will go to sleep: you will wake up. It will be as if those hours never existed. Quietly reckless, Lucy (Emily Browning Suckerpunch) 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 a drugged, comatose, Lucys absolute submission. This unsettling task starts to bleed into Lucys daily life as she develops an increasing need to know what happens to her when she is asleep.
Haunting and provocative, Julia Leighs powerful vision is one of the most startling debut features of recent years.
Emily Browning gives a fierce and powerful performance, which should put her in the running for the festival's best actress prize GUARDIAN
