Thompson on Hollywood
Sleeping Beauty, which will unveil at Cannes, stars Sucker Punch's Aussie lead Emily Browning as a prostitute who allows men to do with her what they will while she sleeps.

Another Cannes film I am looking forward to is Takashi Miike's Hara-Kiri: Death of a Samurai (Ichimei) (his lauded 13 Assassins opens today), a remake of Masaki Kobayashi's 1962 adaptation of the novel by Yasuhiko Takiguchi about a 17th century samurai who wants to commit suicide at the end of his career.

The trailer is below.
