Sleeping Beauty

Not the Disney classic, but the Australian film from director Julia Leigh, that comes with an avid endorsement from Jane Campion-- a very good thing.  This trailer to Sleeping Beauty, which will appear in competition at this years Cannes Film Festival, might just be my favorite 2011 teaser.  Evocative and deliberate, it quietly teases the rules of the game, but reveals absolutely nothing-- if Hollywood had any faith in their product at all, I'd advise them to do the same.  The drawback, at least as of this time, may be it's leading lady, Emily Browning, currently modeling the Kristen Stewart acting aesthetic of glaring in rapidly decreasing cinemas everywhere in Sucker Punch.
