Now Playing: SLEEPING BEAUTY, MAN IN THE CHAIR, BRIEF INTERVIEWS WITH HIDEOUS MEN
This week, we’ve got a unique take on the world’s oldest profession, an archetypical story of a lovable curmudgeon who still has much to give, and the directorial debut of one of the most popular comedic actors of our time. Catch it all over the next seven days on Sundance Channel.
Don’t be fooled – this is about as far from the Disney film as you can get. Lucy is a troubled college student who answers an ad for a high-class brothel. The unique perk? She gets to sleep on the job. If you think the trailer’s stupefying, just wait until you see the film itself.
SLEEPING BEAUTY, Wednesday at 8P
You can’t get much more grizzled than Christopher Plummer in MAN IN THE CHAIR. As the last surviving crew member from CITIZEN KANE (yes, it’s fiction), the curmudgeonly Plummer ends up playing unlikely mentor to a spoiled brat teen as he tries to craft his student film.
