A lot of girls I know have been eagerly looking forward to seeing Sleeping Beauty, a film directed by Julia Leigh, starring Emily Browning. I think it’s because we all secretly love fairy tales, especially when they come in adult form.
Also, Jane Campion is in some way attached to the project, and I’m a complete sucker for her films—Bright Star, The Piano, A Portrait of a Lady, An Angel At My Table—because they’re always about strong women caught up in impossible love stories. Every time I date someone, I see if they pass the Jane Campion test, which means that I come to them in the dark of the night, with nothing on but a cape, and see if they make love to me violently. If they do, I get married to someone else.
The biggest fan of Jane Campion that I know is Shark Mobczak.
