Shoham L's rating of the film Sleeping Beauty

Disturbing, sensuous, incredibly thought-provoking. Leigh explores the detached and apathetic way that sex is viewed by dominant society and western culture, and the way that those sexualised react. Emily Browning's flawless portrayal of Lucy stunningly explores the concept of the "forbidden room" and Eve's temptation.
