Sleeping Beauty Movie Review

27 November 2011 11:15 PM, PST | ShockYa | See recent ShockYa news »

Title: Sleeping Beauty Directed By: Julia Leigh Written By: Julia Leigh Cast: Emily Browning, Rachael Blake, Ewen Leslie, Peter Carroll, Chris Haywood Screened at: Review 2, NYC, 10/6/11 Opens: December 2, 2011 Whatever you may think of this movie, you’ll likely agree: Emily Browning, best known as a child actress in Lemony Snicket’s “A Series of Unfortunate Events,” deserves every dollar that the studio paid her. A pretty young woman now in her twenty-third year, she is required by writer-director Julia Leigh to play a good part of her time on the screen completely naked-which is probably no big deal-but she also has to allow a group of old pervs »

Jackie Marcus and Jeff Schaffer Talk Season 3 of The League

This Thursday, October 27th, The League returns with an all-new Season 3 episode, Ol' Smoke Crotch. Kevin (Stephen Rannazzisi) struggles with getting older, while Ruxin (Nick Kroll) is so desperate to get rid of his au pair that he gets Rafi's (Jason Mantzoukas ) help. In the meantime, Taco (Jonathan Lajoie ) finds a market for Kevin and Jenny's (Katie Aselton ) wedding cocktail napkins. And Pete (Mark Duplass ) learns a new sexual position, only to regret it. We recently caught up with show creators Jackie Marcus Schaffer and Jeff Schaffer to chat about this upcoming show, as well as the rest of The League Season 3.

Here is that conversation.

I wanted to know what would have happened if the lockout didn't work out? I know there was already a commitment-you guys said on Twitter-that whether there's football or not, we're going to have a season of The League. »

This week's new films

14 October 2011 4:05 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Sleeping Beauty (18)

(Julia Leigh, 2011, Aus) Emily Browning, Rachael Blake, Ewen Leslie, Peter Carroll. 101 mins

The outer limits of the service industry are explored in this strange anti-fairytale, as a student submits her unconscious body to the desires of sagging, wealthy old men. There's no prospect of a prince coming in any sense. Bravely elusive and surreally detached in the manner of Kubrick or Buñuel, it's occasionally spellbinding.

Real Steel (12A)

(Shawn Levy, 2011, Us) Hugh Jackman, Evangeline Lilly, Dakota Goyo. 128 mins

Can Jackman train a robot to fight while reconnecting with his estranged son and his old flame? Or will this family-friendly amalgam of Rocky and Transformers subvert the formula of every fight movie ever?

The Three Musketeers (12A)

(Paul Ws Anderson, 2011, Ger/Fra/UK/Us) Logan Lerman, Matthew Macfadyen, Milla Jovovich. 110 mins

The Resident Evil director delivers action spectacle by any means necessary. Forget 17th-century history; bring on the aerial warships! »

Exclusive Interview: Emily Browning Talks About Sleeping Beauty

13 October 2011 6:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Famed for her lead role as Baby Doll in Zack Snyder’s fantasy action adventure Sucker Punch about an institutionalised young girl who retreats into an alternative reality as a coping mechanism while planning to escape from a mental facility, Australian actress Emily Browning talks to us about her next controversial film, Sleeping Beauty.

Officially selected at Cannes 2011, debut film-maker and author Julia Leigh’s film is a haunting portrait of Lucy, a young university student drawn into the mysterious hidden world of beauty and desire. Lucy, played by Browning, takes a job as a Sleeping Beauty, where drugged, Lucy must be absolutely submissive to the erotic desires of old men. But her work starts to bleed into her daily life as she develops an increasing need to find out what happens to her when she is asleep.

Emily talks intimately about her part as Lucy, being comfortable with nudity, »

Julia Leigh's psychosexual drama Sleeping Beauty gets a stark new trailer and poster

12 October 2011 9:52 PM, PDT | JoBlo.com | See recent JoBlo news »

First-time director Julia Leigh's Sleeping Beauty starring Emily Browning looks all kinds of bizarre, somewhat unnerving, and completely engrossing. Leigh was nominated for the Palm d'Or at Cannes for her efforts here, and it appears that praise is warranted judging from the film's newly released trailer below. Sleeping Beauty - starring Browning, Rachael Blake, Ewan Leslie, Peter Carroll, and Chris Haywood - opens in limited release December 2nd. Synopsis: Lucy is a young university »

Is There a Discernible Difference Between 'Sleeping Beauty' and 'Sucker Punch'?

15 April 2011 10:11 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

Rachael Blake, Emily Browning and Peter Carroll in Sleeping Beauty

Photo: Transmission Films I try not to watch trailers. I do my best not to even read plotlines. In my position I am likely to see the movie anyway so what good does it do to know any more about it than is absolutely necessary?

So, when I posted the trailer for the Cannes Film Festival competition selection Sleeping Beauty yesterday and wrote "this already looks like a massive step up from Sucker Punch for [Emily] Browning" it would appear I may have spoke too soon as the two may essentially be one and the same.

Last night I ran into the Facebook page for Sleeping Beauty and came across a more complete synopsis for the film. I had glossed over the previous one, combine that with not watching the trailer and I essentially had no idea what the film was about. »
