Sleeping Beauty Movie Review
Emily Browning stars as Lucy in Sleeping Beauty, a drama about a college student who agrees to be heavily medicated at night so that old men can caress her milk-white naked body. Lucy is a drug addict and likes to sleep around, so this isn't much of a change for her. She also makes a lot of money doing it.
It's not quite clear what the point of the movie is, though Browning's performance is very good and writer/director Julia Leigh at least shows she has an eye for visuals. Ultimately, though, Sleeping Beauty is emotionally cold and as unfulfilling as Lucy's encounters with the men she never meets.
The movie also reminded me of Fox's "Dollhouse", only without all of the Joss Whedon awesomeness.
