The film has been super controversial and is receiving mixed reviews. The Hollywood Reporter describes their feelings of the film by stating " 'You will go to sleep; you will wake up. It will be as if those hours never existed.' That quote from the Australian feature Sleeping Beauty is part of the job description of an emotionally detached young woman who drifts into high-end prostitution involving no actual sex. Regrettably, it could also describe the experience of watching the movie."
