'Sleeping Beauty'

8:10 p.m. Oct. 16; 8:30 p.m. Oct. 17 Deeply divisive in its Cannes premiere (but then, that's what Cannes is all about), "Sleeping Beauty" is on its own bracing wavelength. Australian novelist and first-time feature film director Julia Leigh tells the story of a university student (Emily Browning) who moonlights as a "sleeping beauty," a sex worker in a most peculiar bordello. Without a trace of melodrama or pulp, the movie casts a spell.
