2011 Sleeping Beauty, Sleeping Beauty is a 2011 Australian er**ic drama film written and directed by Julia Leigh. It is her debut as a director. It stars Emily Browning as Lucy, a young university student who performs a special type of er**ic service.
Lucy (Browning) is introduced as an Australian college student who holds a number of odd jobs; she volunteers as a test subject at the college lab and works as a cleaner/server at a small diner and a copy girl at an unnamed office. She also is seen at a high-class bar offering herself as a sex partner (it is never shown for certain whether she is paid or not). She has a room where her landlord obviously doesn’t like her, and she spends her time visiting an aloof man known only as Birdman (Leslie). He is attracted to her, but she doesn’t return the affection, though she does appear happier with him than at any other time.
Lucy responds to an ad and is invited to meet with Clara (Blake) who describes the job; freelance silver service in lingerie provided by her group. Lucy agrees with no hesitation and Clara says that there is no penetration involved, despite Lucy making it clear that isn’t a problem for her. She lies about using drugs and knowing how to do silver service waitressing, but Clara accepts her anyway.
Lucy is seen getting beauty treatments and showing off her silver-service pouring skills for Birdman before arriving for the event. She is the only girl dressed in white lingerie which mostly covers her breasts; the other girls present seem much older and have cut-out lingerie. The event is a formal dinner party for five elderly gentlemen and one woman. Lucy serves drinks throughout and is then excused after having served brandy to the guests. She goes home with the money she made, counts out her rent, then burns that money.
After at least one other session as a serving girl, Lucy gets a call from Clara’s assistant Thomas (Eden Falk) for a different request. Lucy is driven to a country mansion where Clara informs her that she’ll drink some tea and then fall into a deep sleep. Later we see Lucy lying in a large bed, sedated, as Clara leads in the man who hosted the first dinner party. After reminding him of the no penetration rule, he strips and caresses Lucy’s body.
Lucy’s personal life begins changing at that point. Birdman confesses that he’s not going to make it, begging off detox when it is suggested by Lucy. While in his apartment, Lucy asks if Birdman will marry her, to which he casually replies yes. It becomes clear that neither is sincere about holding up their end of the proposal and that this is more of a running joke. Lucy is also evicted from her room and gets a much more expensive apartment instead. After two more sessions sleeping at Clara’s house (during one of which the man burns her slightly with a cigarrette), Birdman calls her; he has overdosed on drugs and she visits him as he dies. At his funeral, Lucy talks to a former acquaintance and blandly asks him if he’ll marry her echoing her earlier casual banter with Birdman. Unlike Birdman, he believes her to be sincere in her request and is dumbfounded. He refuses, citing a previous failed relationship with her, his new one that is working well, and several character flaws he observes in Lucy.
Shortly after, she is fired from her office job. Lucy then buys a small concealable camera at an electronics store and tests it during one of her classes. At her next assignment with Clara, she asks if she can see what happens while she is asleep, but Clara refuses, saying it will put her clients at risk. However, when Lucy is in the bed, she awakes and regurgitates the small camera and places it in the room, then returns to bed and falls asleep. The first man is the client again, but this time he also takes the tea for sleeping, intentionally overdosing. Clara comes in to wake Lucy and can’t, eventually having to use mouth-to-mouth resuscitation. Lucy wakes and sees the nak*d man lying dead beside her and begins screaming.
