Sexy fairy tales are back in a big way, probably thanks to all the invisible sexy fairies flying around. You didn’t know about the sexy fairies? Look it up, man. They’re everywhere. Anyway, this is an update of the classic tale Sleeping Beauty starring Emily Browning. The trailer makes it out to be a pretty dark modern retelling of the story, as does the official synopsis:
“’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.”
Whoa, the trailer doesn’t really go into all those creepy details. I wonder if there really are such things as Sleeping Beauties. I’m asking for a friend.
