Fresh off her gig as the flaxen-haired Baby Doll in the fantasy action flick "Sucker Punch," Emily Browning is taking on another fantasy-based role — only this time the fantasy is someone else's.
The just-posted trailer for "Sleeping Beauty" (which contains some… err… suggestive scenes and is NSFW) gives us the first peek at Browning in this haunting, erotic update on the classic fairy tale.
Written and directed by Julia Leigh — whose script made the 2008 Black List — the story follows a student who drifts into prostitution and finds her niche as a woman who sleeps, drugged, in a "Sleeping Beauty Chamber," while men do to her what she can't remember the next morning.
The trailer voice over warns us that there are heavy penalties for breaches of discretion.
Layer this warning over images of young, lithe women being stripped (thus the NSFW warning!), examined and dragged into mysterious cars and the result is very chilling indeed.
Though the doe-eyed Browning makes a picture-perfect "Beauty," this tale promises to be anything but.
