The Most Controversial Movies on Netflix

'Sleeping Beauty'
(2011)
Starring: Emily Browning, Rachael Blake,
Ewen Leslie, Michael Dorman

Eerie and mysterious, Emily Browning plays the title character in Sleeping Beauty, but this ain't no fairy tale. Browning is Lucy, a stoic beauty and student looking for work. She accepts a job as an erotic maid for a woman with a long list of fetishistic clients. Lucy must serve tableside in lingerie—relatively harmless work. But things get decidedly creepier when she accepts another job that requires she become the muse for a somnophiliac. Sleeping Beauty has the aura of unease, something Browning says made her want to do the movie.
