Peter Strickland's THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY to Hit Theaters Jan 23
Sundance Selects presents THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY, written and directed by Peter Strickland, opening January 23rd, 2015. The film made its World Premiere at the 2014 Toronto International Film Festival.
Day after day, Cynthia (Sidse Babett Knudsen) and Evelyn (Chiara D'Anna) act out a simple yet provocative ritual that ends with Evelyn's punishment and pleasure. As Cynthia yearns for a more conventional relationship, Evelyn's obsession with erotic spells quickly becomes an addiction that may push the relationship to a breaking point.
Dripping with eroticism and dread, THE DUKE OF BURGUNDY is a darkly decadent melodrama from Peter Strickland, the award winning writer and director of BERBERIAN SOUND STUDIO and KATALIN VARGA.
Executive Producers are Ben Wheatley, Lizzie Francke, Anna Higgs, Amy Jump, Ildiko Kemeny.
