Sexy ‘The Duke of Burgundy’ opens January 23

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.”
