Critically lauded Australian author Julia Leigh
makes the leap to feature films as the writer/director of this haunting and erotic take on the Sleeping Beauty legend. Beautiful college student Lucy (Emily Browning
) has just begun dabbling in sex work when she accepts an interview with Clara (Rachael Blake
), the proprietor of an elegant prostitution business which caters to a wealthy clientele. Accepting the opportunity with the understanding that the job is to be handled with the utmost discretion, Lucy's unconventional duty is to consume a sleeping potion that will render her completely unconscious, at which time the clients are permitted to enter her chamber and indulge their prurient desires.
