Miegancioji grazuole Rating: 54 out of 100 based on 38 reviews.
Lucy (Emily Browning) is a young university student possessed by a kind of radical passivity. She lets a flip of a coin decide the outcome of a random sexual encounter and she displays an uncomplaining patience when facing the repetitions of her various menial jobs that fund her studies. One day she answers an ad in the student newspaper and interviews for a job to be a lingerie waitress. But she is secretly being initiated into a world of strange new work; one where she will have to give into absolute submission to her clients by being sedated; becoming a Sleeping Beauty. Eventually this unnerving experience begins to bleed into her daily life and she finally develops the will to break the spell by discovering what happens to her while she sleeps. -- (C) Sundance Selects

Movie Web
Many films have been produced throughout the last hundred years with the title 'Sleeping Beauty', however, none tell the story that this film does, or even outline material that comes anywhere near the subject matter that this film explores.

Australian novelist Julia Leigh makes a strange but nonetheless intrguing transition to moviemaking with “Sleeping Beauty,” her flawed though quite suggestive and provocative feature.

The Australian art film “Sleeping Beauty” may be a wicked feminist satire about how male sexual demands enslave young women. Or it may not be. In any case, you may find it hard to notice anything but the nonstop nudity and debauchery of a pretty...

“Sleeping Beauty” could be called a sleeper hit if by that term you mean that it’s so soporific that the audience will have trouble staying awake. There is hardly any music on the soundtrack to pump our adrenaline, a function that would come n handy

There is a point to Julia Leigh’s debut film Sleeping Beauty. There has to be. It can’t be just an arthousey endeavor or a vehicle for Emily Browning to completely expose herself in. Or can it? Whatever it is, Leigh takes the viewer on a cold and...

The title alone should be an indication that Julia Leigh’s writing and directing debut feature, Sleeping Beauty, has more on its mind than just titillating audiences with the story of a young university student who becomes a strange kind of sex-worker.

Well, I guess Sleeping Beauty writer/director Julia Leigh must have read the same article, said, “She thinks that’s tasteless nudity?? I’LL show her tasteless nudity!” and then proceeded to write this pitiful excuse for a movie. Don’t see it.

She was a satirical object of fetishization in the most recent Zack Snyder film; now, the very beautiful and brave young actor Emily Browning slugs us with another sucker punch in the disturbing debut feature from Australian novelist Julia Leigh.

Sleeping Beauty is a rather chilly, bone-china-pretty, closed-off film, that disdains its audience as voyeurs rather than inviting them in. It reminds me of erotic Japonesque porcelain - frank, yet remote.

Julia Leigh's Sleeping Beauty is exactly the kind of film I hate. Made by an amateur Australian novelist-turned-filmmaker named Julia Leigh, who shouldn't be directing and, perhaps, should never direct again.

The Sleeping Beauty is based, somewhat, on the Charles Perrault fairy tale, though it’s also dappled lavishly with anachronistic brushstrokes, and laced with more than a few thoroughly modern jokes.

The Sleeping Beauty is a minor work from French auteur Catherine Breillat who uses the classic fairy tale as a starting point to continue her examination of childhood, adolescence and sexuality from a feminine view.

The very first scene of Julia Leigh's Sleeping Beauty - a clinical test being administered in a pristine college laboratory - sets not only the tone and mood of Ms. Leigh's film but additionally allows the viewer to quickly estimate the director's game.

Considering that the lead character is near naked for almost half the film, it’s remarkable just how unprovocative Julia Leigh’s debut Sleeping Beauty feels.

These people exist only on the screen, and yet we can feel joy, fear, love, hatred and so much more for them as if they were living and breathing beside us. Most movies never accomplish this feat. And Sleeping Beauty is no different.

As the director said, it’s hard to establish an objective review of what you witness in Sleeping Beauty because it is purely down to one’s own conditioning. If that sounds like a cop-out, it isn’t meant to be.

There are no handsome princes or enchanted forests in Sleeping Beauty. There’s not a whole lot of anything, in fact, apart from carefully arrayed nudity and some kinky behaviour that daren’t risk a censor’s wrath. Eros snores.

Sleeping Beauty has not left me pondering its puzzle passionately enough. The film is pretty, but ultimately impenetrable to a fault.

When Mia Wasikowska dropped out of the lead role in Sleeping Beauty to film Jane Eyre, she may have been doing fellow Aussie Emily Browning a favour.

If you don’t recall the moment in the Disney version of Charles Perrault’s enduring romantic fable in which our heroine nonchalantly wanders into a research laboratory to have her gag reflex tested, that’s because it isn’t there.

Hopes were high when the Sleeping Beauty trailer broke, but any promise of an Aussie Eyes Wide Shut falters early on. The achingly artistic framing and lethargic pacing desperately mimics Kubrick’s vision to no avail.

The Sleeping Beauty figure, as featured in the most popular versions of the classic fairy tale, is the archetypal passive heroine.

Sleeping Beauty ถือได้ว่าเป็นหนังดราม่าอีกเรื่องนึงที่ดูแล้วมีจุดขายอยู่ที่ การแสดง และ ด้านของอารมณ์นิ่งๆ เงียบๆ และ อาร์ทๆ ของผู้กำกับ และ ทีมผู้สร้าง แต่ถ้าหากให้มองลึกลงไปตรงส่วนของบทนั้นจะพบแต่ความว่างเปล่า และ ความน่าเบื่อ ของหนังอยู่มากพอสมควร...
